LeRoi Foundation donates to Trail D.A.R.E. Program

D.A.R.E. BC Society is very grateful to have received a $1500.00 grant towards the cost of the Trail D.A.R.E. keepin' it REAL program from the LeRoi Foundation!  The grant will support the D.A.R.E. keepin' it REAL program in the communities of Trail, Rossland and Fruitvale. In the 2015/2016 school year, there are an anticipated 225 students who will be taking the D.A.R.E. keepin' it REAL program in Trail, Rossland and Fruitvale.

Trail Detachment Commander Sgt. Darren Oelke attests to the impact the D.A.R.E. keepin' it REAL program can have on a community. Sgt. Oelke worked in the Trail detachment from 2002 to 2006 and then returned as the Detachment Commander in 2014. "There has been a dramatic decrease in crime associated to youth in our community and I believe a good portion can be attributed to the fine work by our D.A.R.E. instructors over the last number of years" said Sgt. Oelke.

 

The LeRoi Foundation is committed to strengthening the community of Trail BC and recognize the D.A.R.E. keepin' it REAL Program as a valuable partner in that endeavor. The LeRoi Foundation is supported by gifts from individual estates, that wish give back to the communities they lived in. D.A.R.E. BC Society sincerely appreciates the generosity of the LeRoi Foundation to the youth in Trail, Rossland and Fruitvale.
