Chinook financial donates $15,000 to Drumheller Library, Greentree School
On Friday, September 28 Chinook Financial donated $15,000 to the Drumheller Public Library in its efforts to serve students and to update the library space at Greentree Elementary School, which hasn’t had library staff since 2012. “We see this as an important step in investing in the future of youth in our communities,” said Chinook Financial president Keith Richard. “The opportunity that Chinook Financial’s Community Grant will give us to enhance the school library services at Greentree will make a difference not only in increasing students’ literacy skills, but in helping them to discover a lifelong love of reading,” said associate principal Shelley Friesen.
