Gifts from the Heart

Charles and Kathleen Urch were fondly remembered in a very special way this Valentine’s Day.

Their son, Doug Urch, donated $25,000 in their honor. That gift has purchased a 5’ Memorial Garden Bench for the Garden, a 20’ cu/ft Freezer for the Recreation Therapy department and a 55” LCD Television, Oxygen concentrator, a Hoshizaki Ice/Water dispenser, a VersaCare bed, and a Magnification Machine (for those who have difficulty reading) designated to the Continuing Care Unit.

Charles was a resident of the Continuing Care unit until his passing in 2008 at the age of 96. The bench will be placed in the garden with a view of the river valley this spring when the snow is gone. The plaque says ‘Charles and Kathleen Urch’ – ‘Endless Sunsets – Perpetual Memories’ All donations to the Drumheller Area Health Foundation are administered as the family requests and, best yet, all your donated dollars stay in the Drumheller Valley to provide funding for our Healthcare needs
