Windy Slopes Health Foundation’s Trees of Hope campaign has new fundraising goal to support the Pincher Creek Health Centre.
Windy Slopes Health Foundation’s Trees of Hope campaign has new fundraising goal to support the Pincher Creek Health Centre.

As the holiday season approaches, Windy Slopes Health Foundation has launched its 33rd annual Trees of Hope fundraising campaign.

The campaign runs each year to provide equipment or programs to enhance patient care at Pincher Creek Health Centre.

After consulting trustees and the site manager, Tracey Correia, the foundation’s project this year is to help in the renovation process of the palliative care family room.

“For family and friends of those who are in palliative care, it is important to have a welcoming space to refresh, get some work done, or to gather as a family during a stressful time. It improves the ability to provide support to the patient,” says Michelle Visser, administrator with Windy Slopes.

The room is slated for a new paint job, flooring, furniture and more, which is not a cheap undertaking. Funds raised from the campaign will go directly toward the upgrades, and Windy Slopes has set this year’s fundraising goal at $25,000.

The 2022 Trees of Hope campaign raised money for projects centred around pediatric and neonatal patients. Windy Slopes had a fundraising goal of $27,000 and raised over $31,000.

The foundation purchased a Broselow pediatric cart and Lifepak 15, which was considered a great asset to the pediatric unit at the local health centre.

“With any funds raised, whether through Trees of Hope, in memoriam, or general donations, we are dedicated to enhancing patient care, supporting priority equipment and program needs,” says Michelle.

“We use donations made to the foundation wisely and with much consultation.”

To make a donation, you can visit the Windy Slopes website at windyslopes.ca, send an e-Transfer to the foundation at windyslopespc@gmail.com or mail a cheque to PO Box 2554, Pincher Creek, AB, T0K 1W0. You may also drop off donations in person at the health centre.

On behalf of Windy Slopes Health Foundation, thank you to those who provide their support in enhancing patient care for Pincher Creek and area.
