Brockville – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) Champions for Kids Foundation (C4K) is excited to announce that the Brockville Walmart Supercentre has selected the Foundation as one of their grant recipients for 2017.
C4K executive members Director of Education Stephen Sliwa, Director of Disbursements Terry Gardiner and Director of Communications Cindy Peters, along with UCDSB School Support Assistant Michelle Rathwell were joined by Walmart staff for the presentation of a cheque for $1,000 to the Foundation. Michelle, an avid C4K volunteer, applied for the grant on behalf of C4K.
The funds will be used to support UCDSB families in allowing their children to participate in sports, arts and other fun activities outside of school hours, as well as unique needs like covering minor medical expenses (i.e. eyeglasses), providing gas cards to parents with a child in the hospital, or purchasing a winter coat for a child who needs warmth.
“We are immensely grateful for this generous donation,” states David Morrison, C4K president. “Store staff and management are supporting children and their families within this community.”
The corporate giving program at Walmart has been giving hope and inspiring change in communities since 1994.
