PRESCOTT, Ont. — Kriska Holdings of Prescott has donated one truck from its fleet to the Kemptville College Foundation’s educational program.

The gift is worth an estimated $20,000, and will be officially presented this Friday (September 3) at the Power and Equipment Centre on the southwest corner of the Kemptville campus.

College director Bill Cumoe said he is very pleased with the Kriska contribution, not only because it provides a tangible benefit to the college, but also because it confirms a partnership with a major area business and employer for Power and Equipment graduates.

Kriska president Mark Seymour said the company appreciates the chance to become more actively involved in supporting a leading education and training facility in a time of increasing government cutbacks.

For Colin Carson, foundation president, the Kriska gesture demonstrates another way the four-year-old foundation can become actively involved in fulfilling its mandate for supporting programs, projects and students at Kemptville College.

“I hope that other corporations see partnering and its mutual benefits as an approach they might follow in making their own contributions through the foundation to the college,” said Carson.
