WINCHESTER — The saying goes that ‘when one door closes another always opens’.  Recently, the Hulbert-Valley United Church was sold, and the congregation chose to give a portion of the proceeds to the WDMH Foundation. We are very grateful.

In late June, two church trustees presented Kristen Casselman with a cheque for $49,574.61. They provided this message from the congregation: “The services provided by Winchester District Memorial Hospital are valuable and necessary in our community. When we think of the people you have helped already, and the vast number of people still in need, the congregation of Hulbert-Valley United Church are not only deeply grateful for your vision, but also pleased to help support your cause. We hope this donation provides a small amount of assistance toward the continuation of your services and we look forward to seeing the continued progress you will make in the future.”

“We are so grateful to the Hulbert-Valley United Church family for this special donation,” noted Foundation Managing Director Kristen Casselman. “Churches support our local communities and so does WDMH. This gift will ensure the best care close to home continues. Thank you to the congregation.”
