The Pacific Condominium Association of B.C. recently donated $5,400 to Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation.
The volunteer-driven association closed its door in December of 2009, and the members and volunteers representing it donated all its account remains to support Peace Arch Hospital once closing documentation was settled.
PAH Foundation has raised more than $70 million for the hospital since it was incorporated in 1988 and receives about 5,000 gifts a year.
