Donations For PMH February 2019

Weigh To Go Neepawa

The Beautiful Plains Community Foundation (BPCF) was very pleased to contribute over $8,000 towards the purchase of a Pediatric Smart Scale for the Neepawa Health Unit. The new scale now in use at Neepawa Health Unit was purchased late last year, but it needed to go through appropriate calibrations and other testing before being put to use.

Prairie Mountain Health, along with Neepawa Health Unit staff, sincerely thank the Beautiful Plains Community Foundation for their generous contribution.

“It makes me happy to know that the funds that were invested by volunteer hours into that club are now being put back into the community,” said MCC Secretary, Lynda Leslie. “The improvements will brighten up the space that we ourselves may be living in some day.”
