The impact of a healthy donation is never truly known, as it’s far reaching and long lasting.

Encana Corporation donated $20, 000 to the Friends of the Fox Creek Hospital Society (FoFCHS) on March 25th.

The following are the items purchased by the Encana donation:

  • 2-Otoscope/Opthalmascopes
  • 3-Vital Sign Monitors
  • 1-Pedicraft Infant Crib & Mattress

The purpose of FoFCHS’s organization is to give assistance to the Fox Creek Hospital in any way or means, provided their actions meet with the approval of the hospital administrator.

The strength of the FoFCHS organization depends upon the determination of all concerned to give the best support, cooperation, knowledge and loyalty.

As a group, FoFCHS raise money to purchase equipment and other needed items for the hospital, that are not in the hospital’s budget.

It is through donations from the community, industries and other fundraisers, that FoFCHS try their best to meet their goals.

Therefore, when donations are accepted, the gratitude is substantial.

“We are very grateful for the support from Encana,” said President of the FoFCHS, Lynda Ekdahl.

“We are very glad to help and give back to the community,” said Mark Sutherland, Contract Community Relations Advisor/Encana.

What does the FoFCHS do?

  • Bargain Alley (Thrift shop upstairs, Home Hardware)
  • Annual quilt raffle
  • New Years baby
  • Flu Clinics
  • Screen Tests
  • Pop machine
  • The Journal and cable tv at the hospital
