Hospital Auxiliary donates

The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) received a generous $2500 donation from the Penticton Hospital Auxiliary, for a drinking fountain for Unity Clubhouse.

The new drinking fountain works by reverse osmosis and produces fresh cold water from a faucet in the
dining room of the Clubhouse. “Staff and clients are over the moon”, said Leah Schulting, Executive Director. It means that we do not have to drive to the store every week, and fill up 6-8 jugs of water. In addition, the new system is cleaner and will save the Clubhouse thousands of dollars per year.

Unity House serves nutritious meals seven days per week to people living with a mental illness. All meals
are prepared from scratch by staff and volunteers. Some of the meals on the menu plan this week are:
chef salad, borscht and a bun, fried rice and chicken stir fry.
