Kootenay Savings donates to regional health care initiatives

Kootenay Savings has donated $20,000 to health care efforts amid the COVID-19 pandemic led by regional health foundations.

The donation will be split — $10,000 toward the East Kootenay Foundation for Health, which will help health care programs and initiatives of greatest need at the Kimberley Health Centre. An additional $10,000 will go to the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital Health Foundation’s COVID-19 Greatest Need Fund, which secures priority medical equipment to patients in the Kootenay Boundary region.
