Timberlea School Breakfast Program is run by parent volunteers who provide healthy breakfasts to hungry students, ensuring they get a great start to the day and are ready to learn. This program costs approximately $6,000 per year and relies on donations. If you are interested in supporting this amazing program, please contact Jessica Balsom or Rick Thorne at (780) 743-5771.
The Legacy Children’s Foundation focuses on supporting financially challenged, at risk, children and youth providing them with musical instruments and the financial resources to pay for lessons from exceptional, local, musicians. Participants also receive various music-related workshops that introduce them to the many career options available to them in the music industry. Instructors are selected not merely for their musical talents but for their ability to mentor and form positive relationships with their students. The primary objectives of this program are to assist youth to complete their education and to stay on a positive life path. The Legacy Gift of Music programs are an amazing opportunity for youth looking to explore the world of music, form new friendships, and realize their potential as human beings.
