Stettler’s Boys and Girls Club, part of the Heartland Youth Center, has received a $10,000 grant from Sears Canada to enhance its after-school progams.

According to a statement from Boys and Girls Club of Canada, Stettler is one of only 15 communities nationwide and one of the two in Alberta to receive the grant.

The whole grant donated by the Sears totals $150,000 and the amount is being distributed equally among recipient clubs.

Tamona Bottcher of HYC said they would use the grant to enrich after school programs, possibly by including some theatre or performance art component to the existing programs in addition to enhancing their outreach to the community by calling on more volunteers to join the activities.

In the meantime, another fundraising effort in the form of a BBQ at the Sobey’s parking lot produced $839.05 for the HYC last week.
