The Royal Canadian Legion, Ontario Provincial Command Branches and Ladies’ Auxiliaries Charitable Foundation accept applications for their equipment grant in April of each year.  These applications are reviewed and organizations are eligible to receive funds for approved projects for two out of every three years.  The Clinton Public Hospital Foundation applies for this grant on a regular basis and is very grateful to have received the grant several times.

In 2018 the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation, with the assistance of Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance’s recommendation for required capital equipment, submitted a grant application for funding for a new Sit/Stand Lift for the hospital.  In November the Foundation received notification that their grant proposal had been approved and that the funding was available to proceed with the purchase of this equipment.

On Friday, April 12th, the President of The Royal Canadian Legion Branch #140, Doug Stewart presented the Clinton Public Hospital Foundation with a cheque in the amount of $4,495.00 for the purchase of the Sit/Stand Lift.  The Clinton Public Hospital Foundation Board of Directors and Staff would like to express their sincere gratitude to The Royal Canadian Legion for their generosity with this grant opportunity and their continued support of the Clinton Public Hospital.
