Bella Coola Hospital benefits from Keystone of Life Foundation equipment donation

The rehab/physio department at the Bella Cool Hospital was the lucky recipient of a $10,000 donation

The rehab/physiotherapy department at the Bella Cool Hospital was the lucky recipient of a $10,000 donation of rehab equipment from the Keystone of Life Foundation last week.

The Keystone of Life Foundation (KLF) is a charitable society, supported by the Royal Arch Masons of British Columbia, that collects donations, and distress small grants (normally around $10,000) to needy hospitals within BC and the Yukon.

“KLF was founded over 40 years ago and has made hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants over this period. Our preference is to make grants to smaller, regional hospitals which do not have the benefit of powerful fund-raising foundations,” said Peter Edwards, Keystone of Life Foundation President. “We have no paid staff, all work is carried out by a board of dedicated volunteers, and almost all donation monies are redistributed as grants.”

More information on the Keystone of Life Foundation can be found on their website, www.grandchapter-bc-yukon.ca
