TransCanada supports community facility with $50,000 donation

    The Badlands Community Facility received further support on Thursday, November 3 from TransCanada as they presented a cheque for $50,000 to the new facility. 
    “This donation towards the Badlands Community Facility from TransCanada is a great example of their dedication in partnering to build healthy, safe and vibrant communities,” comments Jeff Hall, fundraising co-chair. “With areas in the facility focusing on athletics, fitness, culture and celebrations for all generations, this is a great fit.”
    In attendance were Badlands Community Facility fundraising committee co-chair Jeff Hall, marketing officer for the community facility Heather Little on behalf of the facility, and Mike McLean and Richard Christensen of TransCanada Pipelines.
    “As employees of TransCanada it gives us great pleasure to present this cheque to the development of your community facility,” said Mike McLean of TransCanada Pipelines. “We strive to be involved in small town projects that are the backbone of our neighborhoods.  It is your sense of community spirit and volunteerism that accomplishes such goals - a proud moment for everyone’s dedication.”
