Royal Canadian Legions thanked in address
The opportunity doesn’t come very often but for East Kootenay Foundation for Health (EKFH) Chair Brian Clifford and Donna Grainger, Executive Director, the chance to say thanks and address the attendees of the Zone Conference of Royal Canadian Legions recently held in Cranbrook was an honour.
“When you look over the years the donations to EKFH from the Legions combined is over $85,500 for equipment and patient comforts that are focused on aiding veterans and their health journey. It is simply astonishing so to address the Zone Conference was a rewarding moment for the foundation,” states Grainger.
The majority of the gifting by the Legions is from annual Poppy Fund proceeds. From serving their country to serving their community the Royal Canadian Legion continues to be an important part of the history of making a difference in the lives of others.
