As predictable as a visit from Santa, the good folks at Pincher Creek Credit Union can always be counted upon to show their support for the Trees of Hope campaign. Foundation Trustees Steve Barfuss and Maggie Olson stopped by with goodies, and accepted a donation of $3,500 from Pincher Creek Credit Union Manager Vicki French and her staff.

“The Credit Union are awesome community supporters, giving every year like they do,” said Olson. “What’s fun and special in 2012 is they helped us break the $12,000 mark in donations.”

Pincher Creek Credit Union has donated $3,500 to the Trees of Hope every Christmas for the past five years, bringing their total contribution to $17,500 since 2008. Funds have been earmarked this year for enhancements to the Emergency Department at Pincher Creek Health Centre.  "The renovations that are planned will provide greater privacy for emergency patients and their families, and will make the work area safer for everyone," Olson said.  

The campaign continues through the holiday season with donations accepted at Pincher Creek Health Centre. You can also give by downloading the Trees of Hope flyer at wshealth.ca. The new display created by Boulder Industries staff will be lit each night throughout the holiday season.

Donors may give in memory of a loved one, or as a holiday greeting to all. Wishes are written on special decorations and added to the tree on display in the foyer at Pincher Creek Health Centre.

“It’s just amazing and really gratifying how donations are pouring in, “Olson said. “I can’t wait to see where the total ends up this year."
