Windy Slopes has successful year of fundraising

We would like to begin this year’s Windy Slopes Health Foundation report by thanking the people of our community (near and far) for their generosity in supporting what we continue to do to enhance patient care at the Pincher Creek Health Centre.

In these economic times, with the cost of everything on the rise, we have been overwhelmed with gratitude for your continued support. We could not do what we do without all of you.

It has been another successful year for Windy Slopes with donations and equipment purchases. We were able to raise a total of $91,734.72 in donations, memorials, grants, Trees of Hope campaign, etc., making our total purchases for 2023 at $79,093.79.

As of February 2024, Trees of Hope has brought in a total of $25,787.50, once again exceeding our target of $25,000. Donations for the campaign were made by private citizens and local businesses, service groups and interest groups. The Trees of Hope campaign will allow the foundation to help refurbish the palliative family room.

The foundation, with support of the site manager, was successful in supplying the Pincher Creek Health Centre with a variety of equipment and programs.

These purchases range from a Giraffe Warmer for infants, a labour and delivery cart, stretchers, therapeutic drums and other items to enhance the care at our site.

 

 

Our most ambitious undertaking, which took over two years to complete, was the grounds enhancement project. Headed by board member Diane Burt Stuckey, along with consultation from the site manager and grounds employees, shrubs and trees were planted this past summer to enhance the existing grounds.

2023 brought to the foundation three new board members and we thank them for joining our team. One board member moved to our members-at-large list, and one has moved away from the community. We thank them for their participation and dedication to Windy Slopes.

Thank you to the local businesses for their continued support by including us in things such as the Co-op’s Fuel Good Days, Tim Hortons Smile Cookie Day, McDonald’s grand opening, WinWin participation, Co-op Agro, and our local media, Shootin’ the Breeze, for sharing our success stories.

We continue to upgrade the Wall of Recognition at the health centre as needed, with the help of Signs Unlimited. The donation box in the waiting room is checked regularly and acknowledgments are sent out promptly.

Thank you, again, from the Windy Slopes Health Foundation board: chairperson Suzanne Curran, vice-chair BJ Scott, Dennis Robin, DonaLee Smith, Harley Crowshoe, Diane Burt Stuckey, Reona Erickson, Tracey Corriea, Joyce Taylor, Jo Baker, Rita Spencer and administrative assistant Michelle Visser.
