Foundation helps children's centre destroyed by floods

PERTH-ANDOVER, NB, April 3, 2012 /CNW/ - The Margaret and Wallace McCain Family Foundation Inc. is contributing $25,000 to help young children heal following last month's devastating floods.

"The Future Footprints Early Learning Centre has a critical role to play in helping preschool children understand the disaster and to feel the solace and security of their community," says the Foundation's chair, the Honourable Margaret Norrie McCain.

The funding will be used to re-establish the early learning and child care centre in the elementary school and to provide temporary accommodations for the program until the necessary school repairs are made.

Mrs. McCain, a former Lieutenant-Governor of New Brunswick, also extended her sympathies to the residents of Perth-Andover: "There are no words to describe the anguish in the community but as neighbour helps neighbour Perth-Andover will emerge stronger than ever."
