At the grand opening ceremony for the youth mental health playground, the Elks and Royal Purple Elks District #2 made a surprise presentation of an additional $25,000 donation for the Mental Health Unit at Victoria Hospital.
After raising over $525,000 for Renal Dialysis in Prince Albert, the Elks turned their attention to another area of the hospital. Over the last four years, the service club has donated $155,000 to Mental Health.
The much needed funds have gone towards the purchases of new mattresses, blinds where there were none, art therapy programs, communication boards, garden space, and new furniture. A major impact on the quality of life and care has been made on the families and individuals who came to the hospital for help.
