CO-OP DONATES $100,000 THROUGH COMMUNITY SPACES PROGRAM
June 17, 2022

Neepawa-Gladstone Co-op is proud to provide $100,000 to Neepawa Middle School for the fundraising of their new playground. On June 14, 2022, our GM, Brian Hedley, presented a cheque to the school and Parent Advisory Council which helped them surpass their fundraising goal.

Neepawa Middle School applied for the Community Spaces program, hosted by Federated Co-operative Limited and were chosen as one of 13 different projects for 2022. Co-op Community Spaces has been developed to help protect, beautify, and improve spaces. Since 2015 FCL has donated $11.5 million to 160 projects throughout Western Canada.

“It was a very proud day for everyone to attend the opening of the Neepawa Middle School 2 years ago,” Hedley said. “This new school is a testament to the progress and growth of our community and the continued positive direction of the school division. As I said in the past, the new leaders of our community are being developed within these walls.”

Below is a mockup of the proposed playground.


Community Spaces is administered by Federated Co-operatives Limited on behalf of more than 160 independent retail co-operatives across Western Canada that form the Co-operative Retailing System.
