Light A Bulb campaign short of target

The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation Light a Bulb Campaign is $27,776 short of its $250,000 goal

The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation Light a Bulb Campaign is $27,776 short of its $250,000 goal.

Since launching on Nov. 5, Light a Bulb has raised $222,234 to support the Building a Tower of Care Campaign to furnish and equip the sixth and seventh floors of Polson Tower at VJH.

The foundation will be accepting donations until Dec. 31.

“We are optimistic that we will reach our goal by then,” said Richard Finn, campaign co-chair.

“The community has already shown its incredible support and dedication to healthcare, so we are hoping that will continue throughout December.”

All donations large and small are gratefully accepted by the foundation.

Generous donations to Light A Bulb were thankfully received from Lavington Ladies Work Group, Sunridge Poultry Farms, Glenemma Ladies Club, BC Hydro Power Pioneers South Interior Branch and Applewood Heating & Air Conditioning.

You can help VJH Foundation complete the lighting of the tree atop the hospital and let the spirit of generosity shine this holiday season.

To ensure that your 2014 tax deductible donation is received by midnight on Dec. 31, you can make a donation online, by visiting www.vjhfoundation.org.

Or you still have time to mail your cheque to VJH Foundation, 2101-32nd Street, Vernon B.C. V1T 5L2.
