A group of students has helped the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Light A Bulb Campaign continue to shine.
Vernon Secondary School teacher Debbie Parmanter gave the campaign a $101 donation from her students who are members of the school’s Service Club.
The money was raised through a bake sale and selling tickets at school events.
With this donation and others that have poured into the foundation over the Christmas holiday, Light a Bulb has reached $176,456 or 89 per cent of the $200,000 goal.
“If you wish to help us reach our goal, it is not too late”, said Kevin Arbuckle, Light A Bulb co-chairperson and member of the foundation’s board of directors.
“All donations postmarked before Dec. 31, 2011 are eligible for income tax receipts for the 2011 tax year.”
Help the VJH Foundation purchase two post-anaesthetic recovery monitors and an ENT navigation system, both for Vernon Jubilee Hospital surgical unit.
“Your donation will assist in lighting up the final lights on the trees at the hospital,” said Arbuckle. “Let them glow.”
