The boilermakers at Northwood Pulp made a substantially nourishing donation to Nusdeh Yoh Elementary School this week. The good news was hand delivered by boilermaker Karyn Yasinsky and apprentice Becaa Foster of subcontract company CIMS Ltd. and Boilermakers Union Lodge 359 in Prince George.
The two trades professionals delivered a pair of cheques, both dedicated to the breakfast club program at the local school. One cheque was the proceeds of the returnable beverage containers collected by the boilermakers during their rebuild of the Northwood boiler this year. The amount was $405.
CIMS Ltd. then added their own $500 as a matching donation, bringing the total contribution to $905 to ensure hungry students have food at school to nourish their bodies and better focus their minds on their studies.
"To say that they were shocked and very grateful was an understatement," said Yasinsky.
