All were located within the Peace Region. The largest donation, $4,750, went to the Salvation Army Food Bank, while 23 other charities received amounts ranging from $500 to $2,500.

PRHP is proud to support the local communities. “Investing in the region helps ensure a vibrant and dynamic future within the community, creating opportunities for people to improve their quality of life,” said Jamie Bodnarchuk, PRHP’s Communications Manager and Chair of PRHP’s Community Investment Team. “We are very proud of our accomplishment this year in supporting local communities. It’s an amazing feeling to be able to contribute to such a wide variety of charities, programs, and groups. Additionally, PRHP raised these funds through its site-wide recycling program. PRHP recycles pop cans and bottles, along with construction debris like scrap cable, wiring, metal trim, culvert cuttings, and other waste materials. Not only do we prevent these items from ending up in landfills, but we turn them into something positive that benefits many people. Now, more than ever, local communities need support. The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented challenges within vulnerable communities. PRHP is honored to be able to help.”
