Arcola Health Centre fundraising update

Fundraising campaign received excellent support

ARCOLA - The Arcola Health Centre lab staff is pleased to advise that their entire donation request of $20,000 has been fulfilled for the purchase of a complete blood count (CBC) blood testing machine.

In addition to the $2,500 donated by the Carlyle and District Lions Club, $10,000 was received from Grimes Sales and Service, $3,000 from the Arcola Optimist Club, and $4,500 from the Arcola, Kisbey, and Carlyle Palliative Care Committee.

Palliative care also donated the lab up to $2,500 more to assist in the purchase of a new blood tube rocker and slide staining dishes to complete their hematology department needs.    

In addition to thanking all sponsors, fundraising spokesperson Kim Penney also wanted to personally recognize two Arcola Optimist members.

“Kelvin Luedtke provided his fundraising expertise, and Blake Brownridge went above and beyond to ensure we would get all of the funds raised that we needed. A big heartfelt thanks to the both of you for steering me in the right direction. The generosity we have here in southeastern Saskatchewan is incredible.”
