October 10, 2018

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.
