“There is nothing in the world so ridiculously contagious as laughter and good humor.” (Charles Dickens)
Battle River Power Coop Board of Directors, management and staff, wish all our members a joyous holiday and best wishes for a happy and prosperous New Year. We hope that you enjoy your time with friends and family and travel in safety.
Each December the staff of Battle River Power Coop collects food, money and everyday items and donates to a food bank in our service area. This year, the Flagstaff food bank, located in Killam, was the chosen recipient and we were delighted to meet their volunteers who came out to receive the donation on what is normally a day off. While sorting the newly arrived contributions, they told us about the service the food bank provides to the community.
Volunteers match each and every hamper to the needs of recipients, within the limits of available stock. In December alone, 57 hampers were filled and distributed to families living in Flagstaff County. The food bank operates year round, relying totally on volunteer staff and donations by individuals, local organizations, churches and businesses. Battle River Power Coop counts it a privilege to play a part in this much-needed community support. Visit the Gallery on this website to see pictures.
Food banks and other family services provide support in communities all over Alberta, often run by tireless volunteers who wish to contribute to their community. To all the volunteers and donors, we send a special thank you and best wishes for a Happy Holiday and for health and happiness in the New Year.
