If you’ve checked your mail box lately, you may have noticed an envelope from Picture This. Riverside Foundation for Health Care and the Picture This cabinet committee launched the direct mailing campaign for Picture This in late September and it has been hitting residential and business mailboxes across the district since. The mail out contains a brochure and Q&A sheet as well as a pledge card. Residents of the district are encouraged to learn about the campaign through the materials in the mail out, by visiting www.riversidefoundation.ca/picturethiscampaign and by viewing the promotional video found on the website.
Pledges can be made by filling out the pledge card and sending the completed card back to the Foundation Office using the included self-addressed envelope. Monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual pledges can be made over a period of up to three years and payment via cheque, credit card or pre-authorized checking is accepted. In addition, one time donations can also be sent in using the pledge card. Online donations are also accepted at www.riversidefoundation.ca/picturethiscampaign.
If you did not receive a pledge card and would like one please contact the Foundation Office at 274-4803. It is important to note that because the Foundation has already asked the district to give so generously, there will be no annual Christmas Appeal this year.
In addition to the mail out, the Picture This cabinet committee will also be hosting a high end online silent auction from November 15-24 to raise funds for the campaign. The auction will have something for everyone including art by local artists, Vikings tickets, a local meat package, a golf membership, and junior golf lessons amongst other items. Get your Christmas shopping done, or pick up something for yourself. Stay tuned for more information to follow.
Picture This is a $1.5 million dollar capital campaign to raise funds for the diagnostic imaging department at Riverside Health Care Facilities. The funds will be used to upgrade the x-ray machines from analog to digital, purchase an elevating fluoroscopy table and replace both the digital mammography machine and the CT scanner.
