The Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society has received a donation of more than $31,000.

RSM Canada, a tax consulting company, presented the agency’s Tools for School program with a $31,376 cheque. The money was raised through the firm’s volunteer week and Birdies Fore Love charitable giving efforts in 2019.

The Tools for School program collects and distributes school supplies to families across central Alberta who have children in kindergarten to Grade 12, who otherwise could not afford to purchase supplies.

“We are grateful for RSM’s support in helping us remove at least one barrier which prevents children and youth from successful learning and participation in school,” said Barb Barber, the society’s executive director.

“We thank the partners and employees in RSM’s Red Deer office for selecting us as the charity of choice for their 2019 fundraising efforts.”
