Hospital auxiliary sets the record straight

Fraser Valley Health Foundation is not hospital charity

In the Sept. 12, 2012 issue there is a two-page advertisement for Fraser Valley Health Foundation requesting donations for our local hospital.

In this ad there is a statement that they are the official charity to raise funds for Fraser Canyon Hospital – this is not true.

For more than 50 years, the Auxiliary to Fraser Canyon Hospital and Fraser Hope Lodge has been raising and donating funds for the exclusive use of Hope hospital and lodge residents.

Do not get me wrong, the foundation is a great organization but they are not the official charity for Hope hospital and the number of items purchased by them for our hospital has been minimal.

Fraser Canyon Hospital auxiliary president
