The Aboriginal Engagement Success By 6 (AESB6) sent in a grant request to the 911 Emergency Services Golf Tournament organizers asking for funds to purchase cultural and educational items for the Yellowhead Community Services Little Stars Pre-School in Barriere.
The grant was approved and funds presented.
On Thursday, Apr. 14, at the Little Stars Pre-School in the Barriere Ridge, representatives from AESB6, 911 Golf Tournament, and Yellowhead Community Services gathered to present the pre-school with the cultural items that had been purchased thanks to the 911 grant.
The items included puzzles and puzzle books, posters, story books and many more First Nations cultural items for the children to use.
“We need more cultural awareness in the community,” said Aboriginal Engagement Success By 2 coordinator Cindy Wilgosh, “And we are excited to be able to provide these items, and will be applying for more grants, to purchase more items in the future.”
