Smoky River Family and Community Services received a generous donation in December, courtesy of the staff at the Sacred Heart Community Health Centre in McLennan and the United Way.

Staff in all departments started raising money in November and they, along with the United Way, presented a cheque for $678 to Smoky River FCSS.

“It was great to see staff support a worthwhile cause,” says Barbara Mader.

Staff held three fundraisers: a hamper basket raffle, the donation tree in the hospital and a 50/50 raffle.

Lynn Florence, the director of Smoky River FCSS, appreciates the donation and the money was made part of the organization’s Christmas hamper program.
