NVCU donates to Palliative Care Unit

 

Pictured above are Donna Overland, President of North Valley Credit Union and Roy Spence, CEO & General Manager of NVCU presenting a cheque for $ 10,000.00 to Daniela Fiske and Kim Rutzki of St. Anthony’s Hospital.

At a recent meeting of the Board of Directors one of the Directors who sadly had to make use of the Palliative Care Unit at St. Anthony’s Hospital commented on how the facility could really use an upgrade to the furnishing. The idea being with that with new furnishings people visiting their loved ones could stay longer and perhaps even overnight if the furnishing could facilitate this. The Board of Directors made a motion to donate $ 10,000.00 to the Palliative Care Unit at St. Anthony’s Hospital this December.

This is another example of how North Valley Credit Union “gives back” and supports the communities we serve. It also fulfills one of the co-operative principles which is “Concern for Community”.

Donna Overland, on behalf of the Board of Directors, wishes to thank St. Anthony’s Hospital and all those people who work there for providing such a vital service to our community and the district.
