Students from a local elementary school learned an important lesson in giving recently when they donated more than $2,000 to the KGH Foundation as part of their participation in Enactus Okanagan College’s CANsave financial literacy program. 

The Enactus team partnered with Valley First to help further the students’ understanding of how saving can help others. In addition to the $2,000 the students were able to give thanks to Valley First’s support, they also contributed more than $225 of their own money to support the foundation.
