The Edmonton Civic Employees Charitable Assistance Fund (ECECAF) team shared their Christmas spirit early and put smiles on the faces of our Kinder students and families for the entire school year. Why? Because their Board approved a $29,000 contribution to fund fieldtrips and purchase backpacks, running shoes and summer learning resources for the 140+ children attending our full-day Kindergarten programs. These amazing gifts provide the Kinders with essential items to support their learning and access to field trip opportunities that offer real-world experiences. Huge thanks to the 11,000 ECECAF members from nine Edmonton unions and associations who have been very generous to our Kindergarten classrooms since 2012.
