The Ponoka Outreach School was presented with a cheque from Servus Credit Union, Ponoka, on Monday Nov. 17.

A Breakfast/Lunch programme has been put into place for the students of the school, and Servus Credit Union presented the cheque for the money to go towards this program.  

The school was happy to receive the $500 cheque. Half of the money raised was from sales at the Open House barbecue, and Servus Credit Union matched that amount.

“It is wonderful to have a business recognize the school,” said Mr. Lawrence Hrycan, Ponoka Outreach School principal. “The money given to our breakfast/lunch program is greatly appreciated.”

The Servus Credit Union had made a call to the school about this one time event. They had noticed what the school was trying to accomplish with the Breakfast/Lunch Program and wanted to help play a small part.

“It was awesome to have another business recognize the good that we do for our students.”

When hearing that the school would be receiving the money Mr. Hrycan’s first thought was that of pride, “to have the Credit Union recognize us with this gift is very rewarding for our school.”

All of the students and staff of the Ponoka Outreach School are very thankful to the staff at Ponoka Servus Credit Union for their support.
