Stitching together their support for priority medical equipment at Quinte Health Care Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital (QHC PECMH) are the Prince Edward County Quilters’ Guild with their recent donation of $462. The funds were raised through raffle ticket sales on a quilt the Guild produced.

The Quilters’ Guild wanted to give back to their community and the Hospital Foundation was top of mind when disbursing the funds. Donations were also given to the Keep Kids Warm campaign with the Prince Edward County Ontario Provincial Police Detachment, the Salvation Army in Picton, the Storehouse Food Bank in Wellington and the Picton United Church Food Bank.

“The primary purpose of the PECMH Foundation is to enhance the quality of patient care in our community by raising money for the priority medical equipment needed at our hospital,” said Briar Boyce, senior development officer with the foundation. “The foundation plays a critical role in providing funding for essential, specialized equipment. This financial contribution from the Quilter’s Guild, received with love, will go a long way toward improving the quality of care for residents in our community who require care, close to home.”

With this donation, the PEC Quilters’ Guild will move into the Sponsor level on the PECMHF donor wall for cumulative gifts totaling $5,000 or more. The Guild has donated $5,137 to PECMHF since 2006.
