“Investing in the region helps ensure a vibrant and dynamic future within the community, creating opportunities for people to improve their quality of life,” said communications manager Jamie Bodnarchuk.

“We believe that communities and families thrive when they have access to care programs and activities, and we are honored to offer our support. We are here not only to build a dam but also to build brighter futures for residents in the region.”

More than 30 community groups were supported this year, the company said. Highlights include:

  • In May, PRHP kicked off their educational support for the year with Project Heavy Duty, donating a dozer for the students to use with a weekly value of $8,500;

  • The largest donation, a scholarship at Northern Lights College for $35,000, was announced November 7 at North Peace Secondary School;

  • Funds were also shared amongst Peace Region libraries, the Cultural Centre, and the Child Development Centre for supplemental education programs;

  • Robert Ogilvie Elementary School was the final educational recipient for 2019, receiving a technology curriculum upgrade worth $5,000;

  • In July, PRHP’s annual charity golf tournament raised $6,015 to support Community Bridge; and

  • The annual Christmas Hamper Drive resulted in $18,020 for several Peace Region area charities and food banks, which will help several hundred low-income families with much-needed support over the holiday season.
