Women’s Institutes generously support Paramedic Services’ Pediatric Patients

Bruce County Paramedic Services thanks the ten Bruce County District Women’s Institute Branches and the Kincardine Sunset Quilters for their generous donation of 41 pediatric support bags, each containing a knitted or quilted blanket, a teddy bear, and a children’s book. These support bags have been distributed to Paramedic Services Stations across Bruce County and will be available in ambulances for pediatric-related calls.

“Bruce County Paramedic Services is honoured that the Women’s Institutes across Bruce County once again thought of us and our pediatric patients when creating these wonderful and helpful comfort items,” said Paramedic Services Deputy Chief Ray Lux.

In March of 2022, the Bervie Women’s Institute also donated 32 fidget muffs and quilts to support Alzheimer’s and dementia patients served by Bruce County Paramedic Services.

Warden Janice Jackson added, “Thank you to the amazing Bruce County District Women’s Institute members for your generosity, thoughtfulness, and creativity. Your generous donation supports our communities and our littlest residents that receive care from Bruce County Paramedics.”
