Scotiabank showed its support for the Badlands Community Facility on Friday afternoon by donating $25,000 to the project.
Drumheller Scotiabank incoming manager Karen Thacker was joined by current manager Debi Kennedy to present Jeff Hall of the Community Facility Fundraising committee, and marketing officer Heather Little with the donation.
“Scotiabank is committed to supporting the communities in which we live and work, both in Canada and abroad,” said Kennedy. “Our donation to the Badlands Community Facility demonstrates our corporate and social responsibility objectives including being a positive influence and enriching the communities we serve.”
Currently, crews are working on paving the roadways and parking lot, installing the siding and moving the cenotaph from behind the curling rink to a more prominent location in front of the Badlands Community Facility. While work is continuing, Council revealed at its committee meeting that the completion date has been moved back to December 30.
“We are pleased with the community’s support of the Badlands Community Facility and excited to see the Facility nearing completion,” said Hall, fundraising co-chair.
“We hope to continue working with donors such as Scotiabank to further support the campaign and the community as we strive to provide a gathering place for all generations, enhance our infrastructure and improve the community’s overall health and wellness.”
