Nanaimo Harbour City Seniors Crafty Workers make everything with loving care for the community.

At its annual Christmas bazaar last month, the group turned its homemade crafts into a $1,700 donation for the Nanaimo and District Hospital Foundation.

The funds go toward the new emergency department expansion at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

The Crafty Workers have been a dedicated supporter of the foundation since 1997, donating more than $11,000 for vital equipment in several departments throughout NRGH.

The foundation has committed to raise $4 million toward the $36.9 million cost of the new ER.
