Évangéline-Central Credit Union, Tyne Valley branch, is contributing to the breakfast program at the Ellerslie Elementary School.

The Credit Union and the school share the belief that eating breakfast has great benefits, providing improvements in academic achievements, behaviour and concentration.

Ellerslie Elementary has an active breakfast program that relies on funds in order to operate.

Healthy snacks are provided on a weekly basis to all students.

The school recently received a donation from Évangéline-Central Credit Union to cover some of the cost in funding the breakfast program.
