Kindness Meters

It is with great pride and pleasure that we were able to present South Peace Community Resources Society and the Dawson Creek and District Hospital Foundation with our Kindness Meter money today. The money was raised by the community and matched by TransCanada totaling $587.20 to each group. Congratulations to those groups! 

We are also excited to announce our next two groups who will be receiving the funds for the next 6 months: Kidsport and Younglife! So please help us spread the kindness and put some spare change in the meters around town!!
