PECMH FUNDRAISING PROJECT PRESS RELEASE
The Rotary Club of Wellington announced today it plans to spearhead a fundraising project in support of the proposed new hospital in Prince Edward County.
In recognition of the club’s 15th anniversary, and co-incident with the 150th anniversary of Canada, the club proposes to take the lead to raise a significant portion of the community’s share over the next 5 years.
This will be the largest community project the club has ever undertaken.
Following the recent announcement by the provincial government’s spokesperson, and with the support of the board of Quinte Health Care, the club plans to have the money available to be transferred to the hospital project as soon as the first shovel is put in the ground. It is believed this fund-raising project will help demonstrate the community’s ability to raise the necessary funds to have a new hospital in PEC.
The funds will be raised through the club’s traditional activities, and in addition it will reach out to community minded donors, other service clubs, and local businesses. The Patrons of Our Community Hospital “P.O.O.C.H.” group has already indicated their support for the project. Charitable receipts will be issued for all individual donations over $20.00.
