In celebration of their 20th anniversary in 2017, Nature’s Essence committed $100,000 towards Richmond Hospital Foundation’s ACT NOW campaign. This fall, they are excited to fulfill this commitment with their final donation of $20,000.

A family-run natural health store with roots in Richmond, Nature’s Essence has been in business for over two decades supporting neighbours and families with their wellness needs. The team at Nature’s Essence credits the Richmond community for their success and growth; they have now expanded their business globally, along with multiple retail stores in B.C., but Richmond continues to be where the family feels most connected and at home.  

“While this past year and a half has been challenging for many families and businesses, it has also solidified our commitment to health care in the community, specifically in Richmond,” says Raymond Lin, owner and General Manager of Nature’s Essence. “We are proud to make a contribution towards the new Yurkovich Family Pavilion at Richmond Hospital, an essential facility that will serve our family, staff, and clients.”

Both Raymond and his son have received care at Richmond Hospital in the past and are thankful for the expertise and compassionate care provided by the health care teams. With this recent donation, Raymond looks forward to ensuring a high calibre of care continues to be available for the Richmond community.

“Nature’s Essence has been a loyal supporter of Richmond Hospital Foundation since 2017. Just as Richmond Hospital Foundation strives to build a better and healthier Richmond, Nature’s Essence aspires to contribute to a bright, healthy future. We are so grateful for their dedication to health and generous donation towards the future of health care,” says Candace Hernandez, Vice President of Richmond Hospital Foundation. “The new Yurkovich Family Pavilion at Richmond Hospital will enable our health care teams to provide the best in care, for more people, close to home.”
