Legion Grant Funds Vital Signs Monitor


The Royal Canadian Legion Ontario Command Branches and the Ladies’ Auxiliary Charitable Foundation along with the Renfrew Legion Branch 148 supported the purchase of a vital signs monitor for the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Hemodialysis Unit.

The Royal Canadian Legion Charitable Foundation was created in Sudbury in 1979. Since its inception more than 30 years ago, the Foundation has received over 2500 grant submissions and has approved over 2000. The Grant submission for the vital signs monitor for the RVH Hemodialysis Unit was presented in 2017 and was approved in 2019. The grant has not been awarded to this region for over 18 years. We are very thankful and fortunate to have been the recipient of the grant in support of essential equipment required to provide the best in care, close to home.

On June 26, 2019 at Renfrew Legion Branch 148, a cheque was presented to the Renfrew Victoria Hospital Foundation, through the Royal Canadian Legion, Ontario Provincial Command and Ladies’ Auxiliaries Charitable Foundation, in the amount of $3,831.00 towards the purchase of the Vital Signs Monitor.
