The Delia School Enhancement Society has come up with a unique fundraiser to help get one step closer to their Community Hub.

The Society, which is made up of 37 members, is campaigning for a Community Hub addition in part of the new Delia School Project and this fundraiser involves a black Angus calf.

"This calf that we have raised was donated from Shiloh Cattle Company and the Eleanor Rosen family, and he is a Black Angus. This is drawing people not just from Delia, it is from the surrounding area, that can all utilize this school," explained Ag for Ed Coordinator, Nicole Devaleriola.

The donated calf is raised by a volunteer family, with feed and other supplies to be provided by other donors in the community. Once the calf is full grown, he will be set for auction, with the money going toward the Delia School Community Hub project.

"Farmers in agriculture, everyone is rich in assets but they aren't rich in cash flow. So not everyone can write a cheque to donate to our cause in raising money for this new school and community hub. But people can donate time and calves." continued Devaleriola.

The Ag for Ed fundraiser allows the agricultural community, which is a huge part of Delia, to get involved in making their community a better place.

"We have a 1.2 million dollar goal for our school that is going to start being built in the spring. We are 88 per cent, so we are just over the 1.07 million mark," concluded Devaleriola.
