Thanks to Encana’s additional grants, Helen E.
Taylor and Wembley Elementary Schools have purchased some much-needed kitchen
equipment, including a dishwasher and Vitamix blenders, to enhance their existing
breakfast programs to include smoothies. To celebrate this donation, the
schools hosted a smoothie competition on March 10th at Helen E. Taylor School.
