Vernon teachers look to support charity

Requests sought for child, education-based charities

The Vernon Teachers’ Association is looking to support a local charity of choice.

Debbie Vandesande, on behalf of the association, said that the VTA is looking for community input on what education or children-based charity to support.

“The selection committee will give preference to charities that have not received significant funding in the past, and will not accept requests from individuals or groups working as employees (in) School District 22,” Vandesande said. “We will give preference to charities that have not received significant funding in the past, and for requests for specific and direct programs, services and supports.”
