Northern Health raises concerns over solicitation approach towards book donation

Northern Health has raised a flag on what is apparently an ongoing solicitation project from a company seeking donations for a "Healing Hands" book, with cold calls being made across Northern British Columbia that are seek money towards donations for children in hospital.

In an advisory relayed today, Northern Health officials note that they are not affiliated with, nor are they endorsing the book.

They also advise businesses and residents who may be approached for donations of any kind to check carefully about the origin of such projects before turning over any money.

Northern Health also offers up a list of local hospital foundations and auxiliaries that offer work that supports health projects across the Northern Health Service areas.

In the Prince Rupert area, the North Coast Health Improvement Society has been doing some remarkable work to help raise funds for projects in the region, learn more about their work and how you can help out here.

You can review the full Northern Health list here; more information on the advisory over Healing Hands can be explored here.
