B.C.'S UNION SINCE 1919

Spreading holiday cheer -- proud to donate to a good cause


Component 8 Community Health Services has made a donation to the Prince Rupert Wildlife Rehab Shelter. The shelter is a volunteer service that has rescued, rehabilitated and released thousands of birds and animals over the past 20 years.

Component 8 executive member Susanne Bellefontaine presented the cheque to the shelter’s co-founder Nancy Golinia. “She was extremely grateful,” says Susanne. As Nancy’s husband Gunther recovers from an injury he sustained from rescuing an eagle, Nancy does all the work – including the vet care. “They use their pensions to keep the shelter running. The donation was much-needed, and they were very happy.”
