Thank you to the Lorne and Evelyn Johnson Foundation!

Work Prep is thrilled to announce the receipt of $15,000 from the Lorne and Evelyn Johnson Foundation.    The Lorne and Evelyn Johnson Foundation, a private foundation serving the people of South Saskatchewan was established by the late Lorne and Evelyn Johnson to respond to the changing need and opportunities of the community and provides grants to eligible charitable organizations in culture, health, education, environment, recreation and social service sectors.
