“The Health Foundation wants to recognize the generous donation of $1,200 from Gateway Co-op to help us purchase two alternating pressure mattresses for the Canora Gateway Lodge,” said an appreciative Ross Fisher, Executive Director.

The mattresses are important in a long-term care facility as they prevent bed sores in residents that have difficulty moving. They are commonly used with palliative residents.

“I spoke to Brad Chambers and his response was positive right away. He told me he would talk to his board but he expected they would support a request of this nature,” said Ross Fisher.

“We know that right now the health system is under a lot of pressure and government funds are going to fight COVID-19. If we want to maintain the services we have locally, we are all going to have to do our part to make sure that happens,” he continued.

“Gateway Co-op invests money back into our region every year, as Co-ops are a community builder,” said Chambers, Gateway Co-op General Manager. “We look to support projects that will have an impact in the communities we serve.”

“Gateway Co-op consistently supports our work to improve health care in east central Saskatchewan. We are grateful for their help and the work they do in the community,” said Fisher. “We could not undertake the larger initiatives we do without knowing businesses like Gateway Co-op will financially support our work.”
