Independent Order of Oddfellows and Rebekahs 40th Annual “Dial-A-Carol” a success!


Because of people like you, the annual Dial-a-Carol fundraiser, for four decades, has been able to help the South and Central Health Foundation purchase numerous pieces of equipment for the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre to support patient care.

This year we thank the people of central Newfoundland and beyond for their support of the 40th annual Dial-a-Carol fundraiser which was held Sunday, Dec. 15th.To help Central Health’s nursing staff in providing the new mom and baby with the best care possible, the Foundation has committed to purchasing several pieces of medical equipment for the unit such as a birthing bed and Nitrous Oxide Gas for pain management during delivery; a medical grade electronic breast pump, as well as sleeper chairs for Dad or a family member to stay and help mom and baby.

We raised $4,400 which will go towards the purchase of equipment for the Women and Children’s Health Unit to benefit the patients – moms, babies and their families - during their stay at the Central Newfoundland Regional Health Centre.
