The Reveltsoke Women’s Shelter received $2,000 from the Revelstoke RBC – money from the staff’s volunteer efforts in April.

The RBC staff spent two days painting and cleaning at the Revelstoke Women’s Shelter in April. For their efforts, the RBC Foundation contributed $1,000 to the shelter, and a matching donation was also given, said Lynne Welock, the Revelstoke branch manager.

“Not only did they give us money, they also came and worked,” said Nelli Richardson, the coordinator of the women’s shelter.
