Flower Power

By Thank You!

Thank you to the Mid Island Rose Society for their generous gift of $1,000 for our colonoscopy campaign! They raised $3,800 in just four hours at their annual plant sale with proceeds supporting a number of local charities. All the plants sold at the sale are cultivated by their members and are of such good quality that people return year after year to buy them!

Teddy Bears!

By Thank You!

Thank you to PetSmart Nanaimo for donating another two huge bags of Teddy Bears! Patient comfort is an integral part of patient care and recovery. The stuffed toys comfort young patients when they are hurting most and provide elderly patients with dementia a welcome distraction.

More Dough from Cobs!

Thank you to COBS Bread on Metral Drive for their donation towards our campaign to reduce colonoscopy wait times!

Did you know? If you mention Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation at the time of your Cobs Bread purchase, they’ll donate 5% of your purchase to us! They also have a donation box which customers can use to get rid of their loose change, also in support of the Hospital Foundation. Thanks Cobs!
