The Prince Albert Outreach Program recently distributed items to local schools thanks to a Share The Warmth Grant from SaskEnergy. Items were distributed to Vincent Massey Public School, Riverside Public School and Queen Mary Public School in Prince Albert.

“One of the Outreach workers applied for a grant  from SaskEnergy and PA Outreach received a $1,000 grant for Share the Warmth,”  Touni Vardeh Esakian, a team leader with Prince Albert Outreach, said.

“With the SaskEnergy grant PA Outreach purchased gloves, toques and snack food, which were distributed to the schools.”

The program thanked SaskEnergy for their grant.

 PA Outreach explained that serving youth looked different this winter.

The grant helped them purchase an abundance of food items and warm clothing for youth and their families. The items were distributed in early this month.

“Without the heartwarming generosity of SaskEnergy, we would not have been able to help as many youth stay warm and less hungry,” PA Outreach said in a media release.

“Thank you SaskEnergy.”
