Thanks to a caring community

letter to the editor by Adrienne Pullen and the Barriere Success By 6 Early Years Community Table

To the editor;

Success by 6 and Yellowhead Community Services would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of the very generous individuals, businesses and organizations that supported the Breakfast with Santa on Dec. 8.

Your contributions, volunteer time and efforts made it possible for all the Barriere and area families to come out and enjoy a wonderful time together.

Because of this support, we were also able to give books to each child in attendance, fostering early literacy for our community’s children.

We also received substantial donations for the Barriere Food Bank and towards our local Success by 6 Initiative which supports programs and activities for our community’s children. The event was a huge success and would not have been possible without your generous support.

Our most heartfelt thanks go out to; Barriere Lions Club, Yellowhead Community Services, Thompson Nicola Cariboo United Way, Aboriginal Engagement Success By 6, Interior Savings and Credit Union,  North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre, Little Stars Playschool, Healthy Beginnings, Sweetnams, District of Barriere, North Thompson Star/Journal, Barriere Food Bank, and the many, many individuals who donated their time and energy to make these festivities possible.

Success starts with each of us and investment in a child’s early years pays dividends for the future of our communities and province. Congratulations Barriere for being a community that cares.
