Costco’s Campaign for Kids helps Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation

While many of its fundraising events have been put on hold this year, the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation will be partnering with Costco who, once again, will be reaching out to its customers to support pediatrics in the region.

Costco’s annual Campaign for Kids runs until the end of September, and will see 100 per cent of funds raised directed to equipment and enhancements to healthcare for children in the region. Over the last 26 years, amazing campaign has raised over $1 million. This year may be a little different as Costco works through compliance of the Ministry of Health and the protocols put in place by the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control, but rest assured the need and the direction of all funds raised remains the same.

“This campaign warms my heart,” said Judy Neiser, Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation CEO. “Bringing our smallest patients into a world such that it is right now can be overwhelming. Knowing that the right equipment is in place to educate and train healthcare professionals, provide accurate diagnosis and treatment, and address preventative, surgical, or follow up care in any area related to children is paramount. It truly gives them the best possible care when they need it the most. We are so extremely grateful to Costco management and staff, and the community and service region for their support.”

Healthcare touches everyone, and the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation greatly appreciates the kindness and care shown for this campaign.
