Adam and Chrissy Busscher, along with their families and the staff at Picton Home Hardware, presented the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation with $7,373.28 raised at electronics recycling events held at Home Hardware this past spring.

These events, made possible by a large group of dedicated volunteers, divert e-waste from landfills. It is properly dismantled and recycled.

The money raised will assist in the purchase of priority medical equipment to enhance patient care at Picton hospital. Each year, equipment needs are submitted for consideration based on priority and available resources. All equipment, purchased with generous donations, must follow a hospital approval process. Medical equipment purchases are not government funded and donations help to purchase equipment that has been prioritized as an urgent need in Picton. Most recently, community donations paid for a new bladder scanner, which is frequently being used by the medical staff at Picton hospital.

The PECMH Foundation is an independent, charitable organization governed by volunteer directors dedicated to keeping Picton hospital viable and vibrant.

“First and foremost we satisfy the equipment needs in Picton,” said Anna Marie Ferguson, executive director of the PECMH Foundation. “We are committed to keeping Picton hospital functioning properly by supporting the medical staff by raising donations to purchase state-of-the-art equipment needed to provide quality health care to our residents and visitors.”

The Foundation sincerely thanks Home Hardware, and the many volunteers, for their generous and ongoing support of Picton hospital. Another e-waste day for the hospital is expected to be held in late September.

Meanwhile, Home Hardware is hosting the location Saturday for an electronics waste drop-off  with donations raising funds for Sonrise Christian School, and also for the second Green Bin organics recycling information and pick up day 8 a.m. to noon (also at the Wellington Community Centre and Ameliasburgh Garage) and Shire Hall, weekdays.
