THANK YOU MEDICINE HAT!!
This year, like the past 8 years we partnered with The United Way to collect school supplies for children in our local area whose families may not have the means to provide them with all the tools needed for the upcoming school year. Thanks to the support of the wonderful Medicine Hat community this year’s Tools for Schools drive was the most successful yet with over 800 backpacks brought to The United Way to distribute to children in need in our local community!
We’d like to extend a great big thank you to all those who took the time to visit one of our locations with donations of Tools for Schools for The United Way including all these great local businesses including: Cucumber Man Ltd., Posh Wash, Postcard Portables, Greg Anderson of MNP, Mark from House of Cars, Poo Patrol MH, Ryan Jackson, Sean Wheeler of Investor’s Group, South Country Co-op and so many more!
And another shout out goes to Mayor Ted Clugston, MH Police Chief Andy McGrogan, MLA Drew Barnes and MLA Bob Wanner for coming by to show their support for the cause with donations for children in our local community!
SUPPORT FROM THE COMMUNITY
We kicked off our donation drive for Tools for Schools in early August this year and our friends and long time Tools for Schools supporters Southland Transportation provided buses to be stuffed with supplies and to easily indicate the three locations where donations could be provided.
And like every year our friends from MY96 and CHAT 94.5 were there to support The United Way with interviews and live broadcasts from our various locations, taking in donations and providing support for Tools for Schools! Thanks to Kim Johnston, Channy Jay, Shalinda Kirby, Joanne Lohr and Darren for coming by to broadcast live and show their support for this great cause!
