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.
