Campaign inches closer to goal


United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) Local 7606 representatives Sammy Dryden and Randy Seeman, Hearthstone Community Campaign representative Tania Andrist, UMWA representative Roy Ludwig, Hearthstone representative Don Kindopp, and UMWA representatives Darrell Friess, Rick Dowhanuik, Mel Murray and Jody Dukart participated in a cheque presentation.

The Hearthstone Community Campaign continues to inch closer towards its goal, thanks to a donation from United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) Local 7606.

The UMWA donated $50,000 to Hearthstone, which is fundraising to construct Estevan's new regional nursing home. It's a lump sum payment, which means that the amount won't be paid out over a multi-year span – the option chosen by many of Hearthstone's donors.

The donation pushes the Hearthstone campaign above the $7.1 million mark. Hearthstone has to reach $8 million, which represents 20 per cent of the estimated $40 million cost of a new nursing home, before it can receive authorization to proceed.
