The Hearthstone Community Campaign has received cheques from two more entities.
Doug Martens and Dallas Fleck, who are two of the partners at local oilfield business Estevan Meter, presented a cheque for $25,000 from Estevan Meter on February 25 at the company's office.
Martens and Fleck are also part of RDD Holdings, which owns real estate in the area. RDD presented $5,000 to Hearthstone.
Hearthstone has been fundraising for Estevan's new regional nursing home, and the support from Estevan Meter and RDD pushed the campaign above the $7.25 million mark. Hearthstone needs to raise $8 million – or 20 per cent of the project's estimated cost – before it can receive the green light to proceed.
Martens said they decided to support Hearthstone because they view the campaign as an important project for the community.
