VSSRotary & Silver Star Mountain Resort Continue to Support Elementary School Breakfast Programs
Mar 14, 2023
VSSRotary and Silver Star Mountain Resort joined forces again, this time with support from the Resort's Play Forever fund, to provide an additional $2,740 to school breakfast programs in the Vernon, BC area.
Recent studies indicate that 1 in 4 children are facing food insecurity, and the increasing cost of food isn't helping. Furthermore, when tummies are grumbling its almost impossible to pay attention and retain what's being taught in school.
This is why VSSRotary and Silver Star Mountain Resort continue to make it a priority through their respective fund-raising efforts to help. This most recent contribution was facilitated by yet another 50-50 draw at a Vernon Viper's game. "The Vipers have been a long-standing supporter of Silver Star Rotary's fund-raising efforts for programs like this. And with the help of Silver Star staff, we're able to stretch the efforts to help even more kids and families" said Jim Kanester of the Silver Star Rotary.
Community supported breakfast programs in many of the Vernon area schools are a key means of making sure each child has the best chance of a great day of learning and developing.
“The SilverStar Play Forever initiative is humbled to partner with the SilverStar Rotary’s vision in supporting the local school breakfast programs, said Ginny Scott of Silver Star Mountain Resort.
