VERNON - The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation has premiered its video series which demonstrates the impact donations have on health care in the North Okanagan.
The series features local celebrities, patients, doctors, health care providers, volunteers and donors sharing their stories and support in helping make health care better for all residents in our community.
The project began a year ago to chronicle the far-reaching scope of the Foundation’s mandate and the thousands of lives that are affected each year from the 50-plus areas of care that the Foundation funds.
“Over the past eight years, I have shared in many rewarding experiences and memorable moments, witnessing how lives are transformed through the kindness and generosity of our citizens through their donations and volunteer time,” said Elise Allan, VJH Foundation President.
“With the video series, we wanted to thank our donors and supporters by letting them know the profound impact they have on residents throughout the North Okanagan, and to show our community the tremendous value there is in helping to make health care better,” said Allan.
Partnering with a video production team from Mastermind Studios, the Foundation video series comprises more than 100 videos.
“We had hours of great content from our video participants that were compiled and used to create an informative series of short video clips,” said Allan.
Last year, the Foundation raised more than $2,000,000 from individuals, groups and businesses in the North Okanagan. Funds were designated to equip and furnish the 6th and 7th floors of Polson Tower, staff training and programs at VJH and IH-managed Residential Care Facilities throughout the North Okanagan, VJH Emergency Department, Women’s & Children’s Health Department, Urology, Surgical Services and the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre.
