This year the goal is to again raise $250,000, which will go towards purchasing highly needed medical equipment not already allocated for at the hospital and Peace Villa Residential Care Centre. 

“Currently, when the hospital identifies a desperately needed piece of equipment not covered in its budget, a long process begins,” explains Executive Director Ashley Bentley. “Start to finish, this process can take up to, and sometimes over, a year. We want to be able to improve patient care in a more immediate time frame.” 

Throughout November, cash donations boxes will be stationed at businesses around the city, with the campaign culminating in the Moose FM and Rhyason Contracting Light a Moose fundraiser during the last week of November. In 2012, that added nearly $38,500 to the grand total.

The giving has already started early, with a $6,000 donation from Sun Life Financial.

Donations can be made at the Fort St. John Hospital Foundation office in the hospital or online at www.fsjhospitalfoundation.ca. Any donation over $20 is eligible for a tax deductible receipt and a 2013 angel lapel pin.
