April 28, 2023 - Since 1877, the Protestant fraternal organization called the Provincial Grand Black Chapter of Eastern Ontario has been promoting Christian teachings, community charity and fellowship.

This week, the Provincial Grand Black Chapter is gathering with the Provincial Grand Orange Lodge of Ontario East and the Right Worshipful Provincial Grand Lodge of Ontario of the Ladies Orange Benevolent Association. Representatives of the RMH Foundation were honoured to be invited to the meeting at the Otonabee Inn for the presentation of the Provincial Grand Black Chapter’s annual Dimes for Dialysis donation. 

Members presented the donation of $2,000 to RMH Foundation Communications Specialist Kim Coulter. The funds will support medical equipment and technology needs in the Ross Memorial’s Dialysis Unit.

“We’re very grateful to be selected to receive this generous gift from the Provincial Grand Black Chapter,” said Kim Coulter. “The Ross Memorial began providing dialysis care in April 2007. The service began in a temporary space until the new Dialysis Unit was constructed — with great thanks to our community of donors. And today, it’s still the generosity of donors like you who make the difference to patients at the Ross.”
