Mankota's Prairie View Health Centre was one of 14 lucky non-profits to recently receive a grant from the Innovation Federal Credit Union. 

The $10,000 grant will be used by the facility to install ceiling lifts in long-term care residents' rooms. Currently, 10 lifts are needed. 

Jenna Smith, Health Services Manager at Mankota's Prairie View Health Centre, is grateful to be able to put these funds toward improving their facility conditions.

"We'll be able to cover the cost of pretty close to three full lifts and we'll just pay the difference," said Smith.

As one of the largest credit unions in Sask, Innovation gives back two to four per cent of pre-tax profits back to the communities they serve.

To qualify, applications for these grants must be submitted to and selected by Innovation.

"I had heard about it through another colleague and I applied online through their website," Smith explained. 

Information on these applications can be found on the Innovation Federal Credit Union website.

Hillrom and Baxter is the American-based company that will be taking on the installations.

A few locations that also received grants include Swift Current's Lyric Theatre, Cabri Prairie Health Care Centre, Gull Lake Special Care Centre, Eastend Light Horse Improvment Society Inc., and more.
