- Canadian Red Cross Medical Equipment Loans Program
The Canadian Red Cross Medical Equipment Loans Program provided over 4500 pieces of medical equipment in the past year. This allowed individuals in the North Okanagan who were injured or ill to remain at home during convalescence. Over 3300 residents participated. The Community Foundation was pleased to support this equipment loan program which also provides volunteers with two days of training on standards of cleaning and disinfection as well as topics like disease transmission, customer service and pandemic planning.
