Burbank has been generous with us the past. They believe in the work we're doing here in Portage."

Schroeder says money will go toward their programming, including the many summer efforts they run. He adds when summer arrives, full-day programming begins from July through August. Schroeder notes students get involved rnaging from Grade 4 through Grade 12. 

He extends a big thank you to Burbank Express for their continued partnership.
