The Shriner's travel fund assists local young people who travel to Montreal frequently for treatment. As Carol Block, superintendent of mail operations in Estevan explained, the money is raised through Canada Post's Attendance Recognition Fund which is then given to a charity of the employee's choice.
Vernon McLean, the Shriners Estevan Hospital Fund Chairman accepted the cheque gratefully on behalf of the Shriners.
Block explained that the Shriner's organization was chosen because of their involvement and passion towards the people that they work with.
A total of 2000 dollars has been donated towards the Shriner's Estevan Hospital Fund on behalf of the Canada Post Estevan employees.
