SUPPORTING LOCAL HEALTH CARE

in High River, Nanton & Area

As you can imagine the days and weeks ahead are going to be incredibly taxing on our local health care team, facilities, patients and their families in the High River and Nanton Area. In order to support them as best we can the High River District Health Care Foundation is launching a COVID-19 Community Response Fund Raising campaign.  

This initiative will see a number of staff supports such as:

  • Mental Health
  • Feeding and housing staff on site
  • Family supports such as babysitting services
  • Other needs as they arise

 “If we take care of our health care team, they can take care of our community.” Stated Jennifer Morton, High River Hospital Site & Continuing Care Manager

We will also use these funds to support the needs of patients and their families as the situation evolves.

In addition, the Foundation recognized that that our local food banks are taxed. Lt. Chad Cole with the stated, “The Salvation Army Foothills Family Services remains open to serve our community. Our food shelves are becoming bare, and we find ourselves in a difficult situation to replenish our stores. While following the directives provided by health professionals, we must remain a people who give hope today.  We count it a privilege to stand and serve you in these days.”   and will be contributing $3750 to the High River Salvation Army Food Bank and $1250 to the Nanton Ministerial Food Bank as we recognize that these crucial organizations are struggling. Going forward as part of this fundraising initiative we have decided to support the High River and Nanton Food Banks with 20% of the funds raised through the COVID-19 Community Response campaign.

More than ever our local health care needs your support.
