The Kinsmen Club of Cornwall has joined up with Seaway News, Corus and YourTV in support of the Cornwall Community Hospital ‘We see you! We salute You” campaign.
“Kinsmen want the community to know we are there for our workers as they are dedicated and strong,” said Kinsmen President Darryl Adams.
On Tuesday February 8 Kinsmen TV Bingo on YOUR TV will be dedicated to the Doctors, Nurses and Staff at our Cornwall Community Hospital, We See You! We Salute You! ”
“The Kinsmen Club Bingo is a great way to present our players with the message of support for the front line workers at CCH,” said Bingo chair /past president Claude Legault. “Kinsmen supports the health care in this community and this is just another way to express our thanks.”
Seaway News, YourTV, Corus and Kinsmen have partnered up to supply the hospital foundation with 50 cards to give out to staff/employees of CCH so they can play that night in the comfort of their surroundings. Your TV will distribute 1300 bags of popcorn to CCH staff as a thank you and recognition, another kind act by Cogeco YourTV.
“Kinsmen, Seaway News, YourTV and Cogeco are true community heroes. Our small team of two is humbled and grateful for your support — and from a personal perspective, we just appreciate so much having such wonderful people in our circles,” said Amy Gillespie, Executive Director of the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation.
