HELP moves to lower level of Boundary Hospital

The Canadian Red Cross's Health Equipment Loan Program (HELP) will be moving to Boundary Hospital.

The Canadian Red Cross’ Health Equipment Loan Depot has found a new home in the lower level of Boundary Hospital.

The Health Equipment Loan Program (HELP) was formerly located at the old forestry building and this will be the third move in a year for the program.

Volunteer-driven, HELP is a community-based program that provides essential health equipment to individuals on a “by donation” basis, such as wheelchairs and bathing aids.

For anyone interested in volunteering, there are some openings available for two-hour shifts at the new location.

HELP will be closed Dec. 21 and will re-open on Jan. 2 at its new location. It will be open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For more information or volunteering, contact the depot at 250-442-2608.
