To say this past year has been challenging for everyone is a massive understatement. The COVID-19 pandemic has been a very busy and stressful time for our front line health care staff. This past week, our Emergency team approached the Foundation to upgrade their physician sleep room so physicians could have a comfortable, restful spot to take a much needed rest. With provincial shut down restrictions in place it could have presented us with some major hurdles in order to purchase items that are not deemed necessary but THAT WAS NOT THE CASE!
Thanks to the wonderful businesses in our community, just a few quick phone calls and we had a brand new pillow top mattress donated by DAN PETER AUCTION (the soon to be owners of the Douglas Tavern), new sets of sheets, pillows, blankets and quilts compliments of Sandy Brown at GIANT TIGER RENFREW, a lovely new night stand donated by DANA at VALLEY THRIFT in Renfrew and some wonderful “WE CARE” packages put together and donated by Renfrew WALMART! This community is AMAZING!
Thank you to our community for your ongoing generosity and support for our hospital and front line staff!
