Quality Foods continues its good works in the communities it serves by contributing $10,000 to the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation in support of the purchase of one of two new CT Scanners at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). Almost 20,000 people receive CT Scans each year at NRGH.

They have given almost $265,000 to the medical needs of their clients and staff living in the Regional District. They are literally putting critical equipment into the hands of professionals who aim to save our lives. There is no greater gift and we offer our thanks.”

Seamstress helps Neonatal Unit at NRGH

Penny Thomson made her way down Island from Courtenay for a special delivery. The seamstress has been busy making delightful flannel undershirts for premature babies staying at the Neonatal Unit at NRGH.

The whimsical design and small patterns make it a welcomed surprize for parents during a trying time. Penny is part of the “25 and 4” Club, which was initiated in the United States and helps dress premature babies who cannot fit regular store-bought clothes.

Thank you Penny, what an amazing gift for our youngest patients!
