Picton Home Hardware continues to Back the Build

At the presentation to Back the Build are Home Hardware’s Darren Haennel, Dwayne Gibson, E-Waste Coordinator, Linda Ryan,Chrissy Busscher, owner, Shannon Coull, executive director of the PECMH Foundation, Adam Busscher, owner, and Briar Boyce, senior development officer with PECMHF.

Picton Home Hardware owners Adam and Chrissy Busscher presented another $5,000 to help Back the Build of the new Prince Edward County hospital.

Hospital Foundation representatives were delighted to receive the donation Friday, Oct. 4 at the store. These funds were raised at Home Hardware’s electronics recycling events held over the spring and summer. The Busscher family extended their thanks to e-waste co-ordinator, Linda Ryan, who organizes the recycling events. The next one is scheduled for Oct. 12-13.

Picton Home Hardware has now given $14,305 toward the Back the Build Campaign and its overall giving total to the PECMH Foundation since 2010 is $41,226.

“We are very proud to be part of this community that supports our County Hospital,” said Adam Busscher. “Our hospital provides outstanding care to so many in our community. When illness strikes, we need effective health care and we want to ensure the latest technical and diagnostic services are available in Prince Edward County now and for years to come. It’s comforting to know that a great hospital with fine facilities is available, close to home.”

Shannon Coull, executive director of the PECMH Foundation, said Home Hardware’s gift helps get us closer to the goal of a new hospital.

“The Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital redevelopment project is moving along and the PECM Hospital Foundation team continues to seek support from the public as we approach Stage 3.

“We are proud of Picton Home Hardware’s efforts to help us Back the Build. They were the first business to publicly commit to raising funds for the redevelopment of our hospital and have proven themselves to be true philanthropic leaders in our community. We are so grateful to have the Busscher family and Home Hardware’s dedicated and loyal staff supporting our hospital.”

The campaign aims to raise $16.5M for the new hospital over the next five years. To date, the Foundation has raised $11.2 million of its goal, which Coull notes “is an outstanding testament to the community and municipal support received so far.”

“The current hospital has a reputation for providing great care, but the building is over 60-years-old. With state-of-the-art design and infrastructure, the new hospital will offer the same but better services than the ones we have today.”

“While we work toward a new facility, ongoing support helps us to provide excellent, compassionate care in our current hospital. Our donors have been there for us, day in and day out. Every day we are inspired by the incredible support our community members, businesses and organizations provide,” she added.

The next electronics recycling collection will take place at Picton Home Hardware on Sat. Oct. 12 and Sun. Oct. 13 from 9a.m. until 3 p.m. in the parking lot. Drop off is free of charge, but donation proceeds will support the Back the Build campaign.
