December 3rd was International Day for Persons with Disabilities. There were celebration and awareness events happening throughout the province, including a very special IDPD Brunch in Vegreville. It was very well attended and we were able to raise $704.90 from our door donation collection and the Silent Auction. Money raised benefited two very worthy local causes: The Vegreville Senior Citizens Sunshine Club and the Vegreville Food Bank.

In these photos, our EmployAbilities North Employment Facilitator EmployAbilities’ Marnie Sydora presents the donations to these charities.

We would like to thank everyone who came out to show their support and for their generous donations!
