WINCHESTER — Caisse populaire Nouvel-Horizon in Embrun and Desjardins Insurance have teamed up to support local health care – and patients at Winchester District Memorial Hospital (WDMH) will benefit from this generous partnership.

On August 28, representatives visited WDMH to present the giant cheque for $4,000 to the WDMH Foundation. The money will go to the Foundation’s Family Care Fund – supporting care for families just like yours.

Caisse populaire Nouvel-Horizon participated in a program with Desjardins Insurance based on

increasing insurance sales. Not only were they successful in meeting their target, they exceeded it by 5%. As a result, they were awarded with a $2,000 gift from Desjardins Insurance. Caisse populaire then matched it, bringing the total to $4,000.

“We are so grateful to both Caisse populaire Nouvel-Horizon and Desjardins Insurance for this

generous gift,” noted Kristen Casselman, WDMH Foundation Managing Director at the presentation.

“In fact, Caisse populaire Nouvel-Horizon has been giving to WDMH since 2003 and with this gift, the grand total is more than $17,000!”
