Chilliwack – This past week, members from the Rotary Club of Chilliwack Fraser (The Wednesday Club) presented Chilliwack General Hospital with a large cheque for $37,500.
The funds raised were gifted to the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation for the purchase of a much- needed CT Scanner.
Club President, Russ Ideson said “I am so proud of our Club. Our members work tirelessly in the community doing services like Meals on Wheels, the Salvation Army Kettle Drive and other voluntary activities. We also spend countless hours fundraising with our Rotary Train, Golf Tournamnet and Travel Lottery. These funds all go to great causes – like here at the hospital or internationally to provide clean water and to end Polio.”
Liz Harris, Executive Director of the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation says she is grateful for the continued relationship with the Rotary Club of Chilliwack Fraser. “The Club has donated $170,000 to our Pediatrics Observation Unit and now have partnered again for the CT Scanner. We are appreciative for their contributions to the community.”
