Last night at our annual Downtown After 5 evening at The Factory, the team awarded its second Factory Trade Foundation bursary to a hard working student at Okanagan College. In front of a packed house (we had over 280 guests!), The Factory and the Okanagan Trade Foundation presented Diana Charles a $2,500 bursary to help with tuition and books.
Diana is a first year student in the Carpentry & Joinery program in trades & apprenticeship department at Okanagan College. Each year, the selection committee carefully evaluates each applicant based on the following criteria: financial need, commitment and passion for his/her trade, and career ambitions. Congratulations Diana!
All donations of $20 or more receive a tax credit and 100% of donations go directly to the Factory Trade Foundation. As a group, The Factory is excited to give back to our community by supporting and encouraging future leaders to excel. We would like to thank the Okanagan Trade Foundation and The Factory members, clients and friends that donated to the foundation to help Diana with her studies.
