THE BROCKVILLE AND DISTRICT HOSPITAL FOUNDATION’S ANNUAL APPEAL GETS A $5,000 DONATION KICK START FROM
Thursday November 5, 2020: Local Brockville residents Terry and Claudia Seed (right) are pictured above presenting Joan Simon (left), Executive Director to the Brockville and District Hospital Foundation with a $5,000 cheque for the 2020 Annual Appeal.
When Terry and Claudia Seed were asked why they chose to donate to the Annual Appeal, their answer was a resounding, “Why not?” They also added that they have lived in Brockville since 1991 having moved from Mont St. Hilaire, Quebec and they wanted to give back in support of Brockville General Hospital for the services that they use.
This year, the Foundation’s goal is to raise $140,000 to purchase a new Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG) laser for Brockville General Hospital’s Ophthalmology Department. A YAG laser is used to provide treatments for a variety of eye diseases, such as glaucoma and cataracts.
