It displays unique artwork and colourful murals with the purpose of brightening the spirits and easing the stress of for child patients.
Tsawwassen Shrine Club member Michael Cruise presented Delta Hospital Foundation executive director Teresa Cooper with the donation.
"The Shriners are happy to donate to the Delta Hospital in its pediatric services" said Cruise. "It's in the Shriners' nature to support children."
Cooper said the foundation is grateful for the continuous support it has received from the Tsawwassen Shrine Club.
"We truly appreciate their commitment to the hospital, our community and its children," Cooper said.
Since 2005, the Tsawwassen Shrine Club has been a great supporter of Delta Hospital and its pediatric practices, donating nearly $69,000 to date.
