Showing the spirit of Christmas giving, the Clearview School Division and Alberta Teachers’ Association have donated money

Showing the spirit of Christmas giving, the Clearview School Division and Alberta Teachers’ Association have donated money to the Stettler, Castor and Coronation food banks.

Clearview and the Stettler local of the Alberta Teachers’ Association each donated $750 to the Stettler and District Food Bank.

Stettler food bank managing director Kathy Willis gratefully accepted those cheques last Wednesday.

“As a (school) board, we value the connections we have with our school communities,” board chairman Ken Checkel said in a news release.

“We also value the positive relations we have with our staff, and we are pleased we can work together in such a practical way to give something back to our communities.

“We are pleased to help the food banks fill Christmas hampers and reach their goals this Christmas season.”

Teachers in the district also demonstrated their willingness to help.

“It is through partnered activities such as this that we strive to bring support and hope to everyone who uses the food banks, but especially to the families and children who are in our schools that use the services of the food banks,” said Corey van Zandbergen, the president of the local branch of the Alberta Teachers’ Association.

Clearview and the ATA donated $125 each to the food banks in Castor and Coronation.

Sue Goodkey, the coordinator of the Castor and District Food Bank, expressed thanks on behalf of that organization.
