Sherwood Park, AB. — Representatives of the media, families and community members are invited to join Mundare School as it accepts a gift from Lamont County on December 17. The school is receiving a cheque for $1,000 to go toward its Breakfast Club, a program that guarantees all students can start the day off with a healthy and hearty breakfast.

The donation came from Dan Warawa, a councillor for Lamont County. Warawa entered a contest with WSP Global Inc., a national consulting company and won. The prize: a $1,000 cash donation to the cause of his choice. For Warawa, Mundare School’s Breakfast Club was an obvious choice, as he’s seen the impact the program has had on his grandchildren and their friends.

“We’re grateful to receive such a significant boost to our Breakfast Club,” says William Korec, the Principal of Mundare School. “The money will help ensure the longevity of the program, and support our healthy school initiative, which is an important part of our School Education Plan.”
