Henders' Drugs in Estevan is the latest business to make a significant contribution to the Hearthstone Community Campaign.
Henders donated $25,000 to the campaign on April 25. The contribution pushed Hearthstone above the $7.4 million mark. The campaign needs to raise $8 million – or 20 per cent of the new nursing home's projected $40 million cost – before the project can get the green light.
Henders co-owner Allen Miller said the company believes that the residents and staff at the existing nursing home deserve a better place to live and work.
New nursing home committee chair Don Kindopp said the building won't be constructed using a private-public partnership (P3) model. It would have to be worth at least $100 million to be eligible for a P3.
