Students donate $300 to psychiatric unit
The Psychology Course Union (PCU) has donated $300 to the Adolescent Psychiatry Unit (APU) at Kelowna General Hospital for patient comforts. The donation was 30 per cent of the total money raised by the group through a series of fundraisers over the past year.
The PCU wanted to make a difference in the community, and chose the APU from the suggestion of a union member who had volunteered there and saw the need for such a donation. The donation will allow the APU to purchase items that will make the youth’s stay more enjoyable. The money will go towards such items as board games, video games and systems, as well as opportunities to go on field trips outside the unit.
