Eva Alvarez drops in to visit Amber Adams, of the Nanaimo & District Hospital Foundation, every few months in order to deliver a new batch of handcrafted blankets she has made for new babies at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). Eva’s generosity is not a random delivery, but a purposeful act of kindness. She uses her special gift in honour of her late husband Fernando Alvarez who passed away in March of 2006. Fernando’s affection for the Foundation’s Code Brew coffee shop staff and for NRGH inspired her to use her skills in order that his memory would live on. Eva’s kindness exemplifies the spirit of giving and her contributions benefit new families starting their life together.
