BMO Bank of Montreal Makes Donation to OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre
It was an exciting day at the OSNS Child and Youth Development Centre Friday, April 8th, as the Bank of Montreal made a sizeable donation.
$4000 dollars was graciously donated by BMO to refurbish the play structure in the Kinderplace outdoor area. The foundation of the structure is aging and needs replacement.
OSNS will use the $4000 donation to make some much needed improvements to the space.
OSNS Executive Director Manisha Wilms says, "We are so appreciative of the generosity from the Bank of Montreal. OSNS' 'Relentless Pursuit of Excellence in Care' demands that we update our equipment to ensure we are supporting children in the best way possible. We see more than 1000 children a year from communities across the South Okanagan and Similkameen. Donations, such as this one from BMO, are crucial to our vision of all children reaching their potential”.
BMO has kindly committed to donating further funds next year.
BMO Vice President of Commercial Banking South Okanagan and Kootenays, Ian Teetzel says, “We are glad to help repair the playground and maintain an ongoing partnership to assist in the incredible work being done at OSNS. BMO is giving $2000 today and guaranteeing $2000 for next year as well. It’s important to give to local organizations and I know there are lots of ways we can help moving forward.”
