The Revelstoke Community Foundation’s fledgling Community Environmental Fund received a big boost recently in the form of a $5,000 donation from the local TD Canada Trust branch.

“We wanted to contribute to help,” said Charlene Roddick, the TD Canada Trust branch manager.

The environmental fund was launched this year with $1,000 in seed money from the foundation and a $267.02 donation from the Revelstoke Parks and Recreation staff, who collected the money from cashing in bottle deposits collected at the community centre.

The big donation from TD Canada Trust means the fund currently has $6,267.02 sitting in its account. The money will go to support community environmental initiative, said Steven Hui, the past-chair of the foundation.

For more information about the fund, contact Debra at the foundation’s office at 250-837-5345.
