Wi Wabigooni (Rossbrook House’s elementary school) students were welcomed to their first day of school by generous GenNext members from Richardson International Limited.
Each child received a backpack filled with school supplies and greetings from Richardson’s friendly volunteer group. The day was also celebrated with a pizza lunch courtesy of these wonderful people!
Learning Always (after-school program at Rossbrook House) began the following week and each of these participants received a backpack filled with school supplies as well! The Richardson volunteer group, who fund-raised for this, also gave a substantial donation towards a special fold-away cabinet for the Learning Always supplies.
Rossbrook House and Wi Wabigooni send big thanks to:
BASF– donated Winnipeg Jets tickets to raise funds
Richardson International– donated the backpacks
Fundraisers/shoppers/supporters/new friends: Holly, Robert, Brendt, Kris, Kathleen, Sarah, Shanell
Richardson GMP, Tundra Oil & Gas, Wynward Insurance, Richardson Pioneer.
We are so grateful for all that you have done! It’s sure to be a successful school year thanks to all of you!
