Gratitude Garden helped to Grow

The Legion Foundation BC/Yukon supports services that help veterans, seniors and youth in local communities. Grants are awarded annually to support local organizations that are committed to helping those who served our country.

The Legion Foundation BC/Yukon was pleased to provide the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) Health Foundation with a grant for $1000 to support their Garden of Gratitude project at the Columbia View Lodge.

Columbia View Lodge is a long-term care facility providing full-time care for 76 residents in Trail, BC. The gardens at Columbia View Lodge are used for outdoor recreational activities for large or small groups, as well as provide private space for families to interact. Phase 1 of the project will widen and level the concrete pathways, create a larger gathering area, install much-needed sunshades, and add raised and mobile garden beds. Updating this space will have a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of residents, families and employees. The Legion Foundation is pleased to join other community partners in supporting this project.

This support would not have been possible without the generous support of Legion Foundation donors – thank you!
