The Order of the Eastern Star, Chapter 310 in Winchester, donated $1,200 towards the Kemptville District Hospital [KDH] this past week. The Order is a Masonic appendant body, open to both men and women, with Chapters all over the world who donate millions of dollars to various good causes every year. Laila Jensen, Worthy Matron, who lives in North Grenville, chose KDH to receive their Chapter’s donation this year.
Mary Boucher, who is the Senior Manager of Community Engagement for the Kemptville District Hospital Foundation, welcomed the donation. “Funds from this donation will be used towards our Compassionate Care Fund. This allows the Foundation to fund requests that are directly related to ensuring the patient experience is as comfortable and compassionate as possible. Recent purchases include an EZ Turn Lift to assist nursing staff, a Recumbent bike for the Physio department, an iPad for Alzheimer’s patients and New Mammography Robes for the Diagnostic Imaging department.”
