House of Economy Community Group is one of four groups involved with running the House of Economy Thrift Store at 246 Manitoba Ave in Selkirk. This year, the group has generously donated $4,000 to the Palliative Care program.

Palliative care is specialized medical care that focuses on providing end-of-life patients relief from pain and other symptoms of a serious illness, no matter the diagnosis or stage of disease. Palliative care teams aim to improve the quality of life for both patients and their families.

Colleen Girling from House of Economy Community Group would like to thank everyone that donates to the House of Economy.

“Because of all the kind people in the community, we are able to make these types of donations to many important causes in our city.”

Executive director of the Interlake Eastern Health Foundation Pamela McCallum acknowledges the group’s work and is grateful for their generosity.

“The Palliative Care program is continuously supported by our gracious community remembers, and we are beyond thankful for their gifts. Each and every donation the foundation receives is hard at work enhancing local, dedicated patient and resident care.”

Interlake Eastern Health Foundation’s mission is to raise funds that support health care in the Interlake-Eastern health region.
