Sky-Tech Equipment in North Battleford is helping raise the Saskatchewan Hospital New Beginnings campaign to new heights.
Sky-Tech and its owner/operators the Halewich family donated $50,000 to the fundraising campaign to purchase the necessary medical equipment and furniture for the new Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford. The coffee shop and canteen in the new facility will be named the Sky-Tech Café in recognition of the donation.
The Halewich families - Myron and June along with their children Bill and Brenda, Donna and Ivan, Theresa and Al, and Dale and Angie - recognize that supporting mental health is increasingly important across Saskatchewan and in our community as it affects so many including colleagues, clients, and loved ones.
“We are grateful to have been a part of the Saskatchewan Hospital project, one of the largest construction projects in The Battlefords’ history. Participation of our local business throughout construction of the new hospital allows us to return that support to the New Beginnings campaign,” said Bill Halewich, partner.
The Halewich families and Sky-Tech Equipment have deep roots in The Battlefords and a rich heritage of giving back. They believe in sharing their success with the community in which they live and work, whether it is through donations to local children for their sports teams and clubs, donations to local organizations to help make their events successful, or contributions to efforts such as Saskatchewan Hospital New Beginnings to support mental health care for citizens of Saskatchewan.
“Our success over the years has been not only because of lots of hard work, but has also been strongly connected to the support of others. We believe that we have a responsibility to give back to our community, and in doing so it creates a virtuous cycle that makes everyone successful,” said partner Dale Halewich.
Sky-Tech Equipment has readily accepted the challenge issued earlier this year to all other businesses and families to contribute to the New Beginnings campaign. “We are accepting this challenge and taking it one step further to challenge all other rental companies in the province, especially those that have been part of the Saskatchewan Hospital project,” Bill stated.
“We are thrilled to have Sky-Tech Equipment join us in this campaign,” said Corinne Bernier Delainey, New Beginnings Fundraising Lead. “This $50,000 donation will go a long way in improving the lives of the people who come to Saskatchewan Hospital for care,” she added.
The New Beginnings campaign has now reached $7.5 million of its $8 million goal to purchase the necessary medical equipment and furnishings for the new Saskatchewan Hospital North Battleford.
Bernier Delainey is confident the campaign will achieve its target thanks to province-wide and local financial contributions.
