Kootenay Co-op REACHes out

The Kootenay Co-op made a donation to the Nelson Professional Firefighters, who in turn passed the funds on to the REACH program.

Surrounding Nelson Commons project manager Russell Precious and Kootenay Co-op GM Deirdrie Lang are Nelson firefighters Gord Rae, Marc Thibault, Martin Ouellette, and Bob Patton, all presenting a cheque to be given to the REACH foods program at Central School.

The Kootenay Co-op, which is preparing to develop and move to the old Extra Foods property (soon to be Nelson Commons), donated the funds to the Nelson Professional Firefighters Association. The firefighters, in turn, decided to pass the funds on to the REACH alternate school’s food program, recently struck with unexpected costs.

The program’s teacher, Jordon Konken, and youth support worker, Karee-Ann Stuart, would like to thank the firefighters’ association and Kootenay Co-op for the donation that will go toward getting their kitchen up and running again. REACH students provide food services to hungry kids in the district who may have difficulties bringing lunches to school on a regular basis.
