Saint John Y

We donated $10,000 towards the Y’s Send a Kid to Camp Campaign. We know that at camp, friendships are formed, new skills learned, and lifelong memories made, so we were pleased to support this Campaign, which ensures that kids get to experience camp this summer.

Hazen White-St.Francis School (HWSF)

Over the last couple of years, we have helped get Crescent Valley kids ready for school by supplying backpacks full of school materials.  This year, HWSF’s priority was to find funding for their hot lunch program, thereby ensuring that every student has a hot meal and a full belly, and is ready to learn.  Emera New Brunswick donated $1,000 towards HWSF’s hot meal program.  Emera NB has also hosted HWSF students and staff at Sea Dogs hockey games, and enabled 24 HWSF students to see Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield speak at Harbour Station in Saint John.
