Cans for a Cause: Pine Echo Camp Turns Summertime Fun Into $2,000 for Wingham & District Hospital Foundation
Pine Echo Camp in Belmore held an ongoing charity bottle drive during the summers of 2016 and 2017. Campers were asked to leave their empty cans and bottles at the campground’s collection center, with the knowledge that the funds from their returns would be donated. Lots of fun was had at Pine Echo Camp these past summers which transformed into a $2,000 to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation.
In 2015, the campground owner’s son, Kyle Grant, started the bottle drive to raise funds for the Military Police Fund for Blind Children while attending the Canadian Forces Military Police Academy in Borden. After the success of that first bottle drive, Kyle and his sister Tianna Grant decided to continue the program and donate to local charities. Tianna, with help from family and friends, kept it running throughout the last two summers while Kyle was stationed in Halifax, Nova Scotia for his job with the Military Police in the Canadian Armed Forces.
Tianna is a paramedic with Bruce County Paramedic Services, so with both siblings working in the field of emergency services the decision was made to donate the money from the bottle drive to the Wingham & District Hospital Foundation. “Every summer at least one visitor to the campground ends up at the local hospital. We are lucky to have it nearby and those who visit always report receiving excellent care”, say the Grants.
The entire Grant family would like to thank all the generous campers for contributing their empties and making the donation possible. This donation will benefit the ongoing redevelopment work at the Wingham & District Hospital and support the purchase of new medical equipment.
