Giving the gift of science

Thursday, December 20, 2018 2:00 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Some North Okanagan families will find the gift of science under the tree this year.

The Okanagan Science Centre and Kal Tire are providing 20, one-year memberships to families in need who might not otherwise be able to fully enjoy the science centre.

Memberships will be distributed by the Salvation Army through their Christmas hampers.

Executive Director Jim Swingle said at the recent International Science Centre and Science Museum Day event, Kal Tire set up a by-donation barbecue in front of the building.

Kal Tire donated all proceeds from the barbecue to the science centre, funding 10 family memberships. The Okanagan Science Centre matched the contribution, making for 20 family memberships to be given out.

The CASC office is situated in Robinson Huron Treaty territory and the land on which we learn and live is the traditional territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek. We strive for reconciliation through knowledge sharing and respectful relationships.
