The Fort St. John Hospital foundation accepted a cheque for more than $13,000 on Monday.

Canadian Natural Resources Limited Corporation matched the amount raised by CNRL employees, then presented the total amount to the foundation.

Hospital Foundation Spokesperson Ashley Bentley says the ‘matching donations’ fundraiser is an excellent way for companies to recognize their employees’ commitment to the community. She says it also fulfills the company’s commitment to social responsibility.

The donation made was split into two funds, including the Cancer Diagnostic and Treatment Fund and the Henry Petrie Endowment Fund.
