For 2012, all proceeds from the Door Prize tickets and FAC Show ‘N Shine Raffle tickets will go towards supporting the Sherwood School Breakfast Program and River’s Edge Camp.
The Sherwood School Breakfast Program was started in February 2009 to serve a nutritious bagged breakfast to kids in Grades 5-9 who need it. Prior to the implementation of the Breakfast Program, teachers had been stocking granola bars in their desks to give out to kids who said they had not eaten that day and were hungry. This Breakfast Program is now expanding to serve children in Kindergarten to Grade 4 at Banting and Best, a sister school to Sherwood.
River’s Edge Camp and Conference Centre operates its year round ministries and programs on 320 acres of rolling hills just 45 minutes from NW Calgary near Water Valley, Alberta. Last summer the River’s Edge Camper Subsidy Program made it possible for 95 people to enjoy the camp’s natural setting for a supernatural experience. Annually over 800 people are involved in their summer camps and nearly 7,000 enjoy their ministries throughout the year.
