Thank you from the Arrow Lakes Hospital Auxiliary

The auxiliary wants to thank the community for all the support they're given.

With Auxiliary Day taking place on May 10, the Arrow Lakes Hospital Auxiliary (ALHA) would like to take this time to thank the residents of the area for all the support they receive.

The community has always been supportive of the auxiliary through the donations it receives for the Thrift Shop, which enables the auxiliary to help out not just the the hospital here in Nakusp, but other organizations with the Arrow Lakes.

Some of the associations and people the auxiliary has been able to help as a result are: The Arrow Lakes Hospital and Minto House, bursaries for secondary school students, mature students, PALS, the Nakusp Public Library, and the Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation (KLHF).

The KLHF have recently given the ALHA and Award of Excellence. Because of the ALHA’s philanthropic efforts with the foundation, they have been given a gold level certificate for their contributions from 2015.

The auxiliary has also helped the Arrow and Slocan Lakes Community Services in procuring some much needed equipment, like the medical monitor and generator at Halcyon House, along with a bus service for Better At Home.

The ALHA looks forward to continuing to help the community for many years to come.
