WeeMedical helps the helpers

Joel Wilson and his team at WeeMedical Dispensary Society are lending a helping hand to a local organization whose focus is to support, care for and honour those in our community who are struggling.

Grassroots Kind Hearts Society is a volunteer based initiative which provides home cook meals and support for those of our “Elders, family and friends” living on the streets of Campbell River; those who are at risk of homelessness and those who have housing but are living in extreme poverty.  They serve more than 70 people outside, seven-nights-per-week, in the rain, sun, snow and wind.  Their volunteers purchase and prepare all meals out of their own pockets often placing themselves in financial hardship. In addition to food, the group purchases tents and new clothing.  They also distribute donated clothing.

Wilson and his team presented a $1,000 donation along with blankets they have purchased and other items which have been donated by community members to folks from Grassroots Kind Hearts Society last Thursday at WeeMedical in Willow Point.  We encourage everyone to come on out and show their support for this group who are able to create so much out of so little.  Wilson and his team will also presented a $200 donation to Campbell River and North Island Transition Society to match donations dropped off at WeeMedical in the past month.
