The Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation (CKHA) is pleased to announce that the Helping Hand Auxiliary has made a very generous donation of $15,000 to the $6.9 million CKHA Diagnostic Imaging Equipment Renewal Campaign.
“This was an unsolicited surprise for us, and a great way to kickoff our Campaign relaunch,” says Candice Jeffrey, Director of Development, Chatham-Kent Health Alliance Foundation. “When the Auxiliary ladies heard we were relaunching our Campaign, they wanted to start off our Campaign with an additional generous donation.”
Formed in 2002, the Helping Hands Auxiliary is comprised of former healthcare providers and volunteers from the community. Funds are raised through the proceeds of the Boutique Grand Gift Shop at the Chatham Campus, and other various fundraisers hosted by the Auxiliary. Since the Campaign launched in 2014, the Helping Hands Auxiliary has donated more than $90,000 towards the purchase of Diagnostic Imaging Equipment.
