Peace Arch Hospital Foundation Projects: COVID-19 Emergency Fund

COVID-19 Emergency Fund

Responding to COVID-19 has been one of our most critical priorities to date, but we are committed to helping Peace Arch Hospital however we can. As an organization responsible for helping to fund equipment and medical supplies for your community hospital, we take our job very seriously. We are doing everything in our power to support Peace Arch Hospital — and the community of White Rock and South Surrey during this time. We know that many of you wish to do the same.

How You Can Help

  1. Make a Donation Towards our COVID-19 Emergency Fund

    This will supply Peace Arch Hospital with the funds necessary to provide our healthcare workers with immediate comforts and needs like food, hotel and/or respite stays. In addition, it will provide Peace Arch Hospital with the ability to purchase any critical equipment, medical devices or additional necessities as needs arise.  Donations can be made easily online by visiting pahfoundation.ca/donate-now

    Please note: Cafeteria and Tim Horton’s services are currently suspended at Peace Arch Hospital. With limited availability of food service areas on or near the hospital campus, many staff are left without options for food. Proceeds from our COVID-19 Emergency Fund will help to supply Peace Arch Hospital staff with complimentary food services during this time. 

  2. Donation of PPE or Medical Supplies

    The Provincial Health Services Authority  has endorsed SafeCare BC to collect local Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donations. Donations will be stored centrally, and from there will be distributed to hospitals, long-term care, home care, community health support, and assisted living facilities according to need. For inquiries about local donations of PPE, please contact SafeCare BC by email at info@safecarebc.ca. You may also ship PPE donations to:

    Lower Mainland Fulfillment Centres
    8521 198a Street 
    Langley, BC
    Loading Bay #1

  3. Give in Recognition

    Making a Gift in Appreciation for wonderful care received at Peace Arch Hospital is a special and unique way to honour someone personally. Express your gratitude to a nurse, doctor, technologist, or the entire medical team with a gift in recognition, and they will receive a card notifying them of your gift along with a special lapel pin.

  4. Send words of Encouragement with an E-Note

    Leaving words of encouragement for staff at Peace Arch Hospital is a great way to keep everyone’s spirits high. If you have words of encouragement to share, please send an email to logan@pahfoundation.ca and she will be happy to ensure your message is seen by front-line workers within the hospital and through our social media channels.

  5. Be Inspired by Other Donors

    Donations made towards our COVID-19 Emergency Fund have already made a difference for our frontline healthcare heroes. The generosity of donors is helping to ensure that our medical teams have everything they need to provide you and your loved ones with the best care possible.
