Armstrong Co-op delivers new tools for trades students
A co-operative that has a nearly 100-year history in the community is supporting the next generation of skilled trades workers with a donation of new tools to Okanagan College Vernon campus.
Armstrong Regional Cooperative has donated $5,000 to the new Trades Training Centre to purchase state-of-the-art tools for the students in the more than seven programs offered in the new Centre.
“A big part of our business model is supporting the community,” explains Jason Keis, Armstrong Regional Cooperative Marketing and Sales Manager.
“We were excited to invest in students entering the trades, especially as the trades are so connected to our business.”
Armstrong Co-op operates gas and convenience stores in Vernon, Salmon Arm and Armstrong as well as cardlock fueling stations. Click here to read more
