Corporate generosity

Patti Larson, Community Connections' outreach services manager, received a $500 cheque from Catalyst International courtesy of Rick Barisoff of Acklands-Grainger on Friday. Acklands-Grainger distributes industrial safety equipment and, according to Barisoff, Catalyst International and its parent Kimberley Clark wanted to give something back to the community. Charitable agencies in other parts of BC were also due to receive cheques, Barisoff said. Patti Larson said the money will be a big help to the Community Connections Food Bank. David F. Rooney photo
