I wrapped up our live on locations for ProPlan Financial Group's Community Charity Challenge yesterday in Three Hills.
This followed our event in Drumheller last Thursday. Both events were fantastic as both gave an opportunity for non-profit organizations to showcase what they do in our communities. With the groups featuring how they help our communities, it spurred on locals stopping in to donate to the causes. That is why Roger Stevenson from ProPlan decided to do this.
As of Thursday, there were about 30 groups that will benefit from this program. As well, locals donated just under 17,000 to their community organizations. The final numbers are not in as of yet as people still have the opportunity to submit donations until 5:00 pm on Friday, December 14th.
It was great to talk to all of the people involved in their organizations. They all have passion about what they are involved in. Most would talk about their group on the air and then stay and talk about it for 10 minutes after which was fantastic. It shows that people absolutely love doing what they are doing.
I was very impressed with how close-knit Three Hills is. A very strong community and they are very proud of that fact. I had a great time at both offices in Drumheller and Three Hills. A huge shout out to ProPlan for supporting the communities they belong to.
