RCL grants $8500 to Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation

The Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation has received $8500, which will support funding for vital equipment.

Earlier this month, the Royal Canadian Legion (RCL) presented two donations to the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation (LMHF). These combined gifts – a $6500 grant from the RCL Ontario Command Branches and Auxiliary Ladies Community Foundation and a $2000 grant from the RCL Branch 134 from their Poppy Fund – fully cover the cost of a cardiac ultrasound probe for Louise Marshall Hospital. This cheque presentation was a long-time in the making as both grants were approved earlier in the year but given the COVID-19 pandemic, the Legion and LMHF representatives were unable to meet due to restrictions on gathering.

In a media release, the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundations says they are tremendously grateful for the continued generosity of the Royal Canadian Legion. In times like these, it has been a tough go for charities of all stripes, and the support of our community groups goes a long way towards helping the Louise Marshall Hospital Foundation fulfill its mandate to provide funding for capital equipment at our local hospital.
