The Courtenay Legion recently presented the Comox Valley Health Foundation with a cheque for $20,000. The Legion was going to have it support specific upgrades, however, given everything that is happening right now, they decided to use the funds to support our Foundation’s Area of Greatest Need. “The Legion is one of our longest, largest, and most dedicated donors over the years. They have supported St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation, and now the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation for more than 20 years,” said CVHF executive director, Colt Lon. “We were thrilled to hear that the Courtenay Legion are using this extremely generous $20,000 gift to support Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation’s Areas of Greatest Need. Their dedication over the last 20+ years, providing monumental support to healthcare in the Comox Valley has had a profound effect on our community. We truly value, and are proud of the tremendous relationship we have with the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 17, of Courtenay”.
