Subway Restraurants donate $5,000 to Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation campaign

Vernon Subway restaurants continue to show their support for the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation year after year.

The local restaurants have given $5,000 to the foundation’s OPERATION: Surgical Care For Life campaign.

Local Subway co-owners Gurjit Jhajj and Raj Jaswal have been long-term donors to the foundation and recognize the importance of improving healthcare in the North Okanagan. They have donated more than $72,000 since 2004 to many VJH Foundation initiatives.

“We have family members who have needed to use the hospital. Everyone will need the hospital at some point in their lives and that is why we continue to support the VJH Foundation,” said Jaswall.

“We are grateful for Subway’s ongoing support of our foundation,” said Lisa Westermark, VJHF executive director. “Gurjit and Raj are kind and genuine people who share a commitment to the community. They are joyful in giving back. It is very special.”

OPERATION: Surgical Care for Life is raising $3.6 million to equip an additional operating room, purchase six anaesthetic machines, and a new urology table with real-time imaging. The campaign will give VJH surgeons the ability to perform more surgeries, ultimately reducing wait times and improving patient outcomes so our loved ones can get on the road to recovery much sooner.
