Meet Riley: a Community Hero

This week’s Community Hero is seven-year-old Riley of Cranbrook.

Meet Riley Community HeroA love of animals prompted Riley to raise $123 for the East Kootenay BC SPCA during her birthday party for the Be A Community Hero campaign.

Be a Community Hero encourages kids of all ages who are hosting a party or celebration to choose a cause close to their heart and ask their guests to bring a small donation instead of a present. When making the donation to the organization of choice, the child will have his or her photo taken and be featured on as the week’s community hero. The child will also take home a certificate and, better yet, the awesome, warm fuzzy feeling one gets from choosing to give rather than receive.

Name: Riley

Birthday: March 13, 2009

Amount of donation: $123

Organization receiving donation: East Kootenay BC SPCA.

Why did you choose to be a hero today? I love animals and want to help take care of them.

To Be A Community Hero and get featured on, complete this form and bring it with you when you make your donation!

For info on where/when to drop off the donation and form, contact Jody or Riley at the Cranbrook and District Community Foundation at 250-426-1119.
