Lethbridge Girls Rock Camp is a non-profit, volunteer driven organization where youth aged 9 to 17 can learn a new instrument (or new techniques on an old one) and express themselves in creative and artistic ways, as well as build self-esteem, confidence, and leadership and teamwork skills.
LGRC values the diversity of age, race, economic status, gender expression, size, physical ability, developmental ability, musical interests, learning styles, nationality, religion, thought, citizenship status, and sexual orientation. They promote respect and do not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, or other discriminatory behaviour or expression.
We were delighted to team up with MLA Shannon Phillips to donate this laptop and printer to the Lethbridge Girls Rock Camp. This will be used to assist their coordinators, interns and volunteers with day to day tasks throughout the season.
Shannon Phillips was first elected on May 5th, 2015 as the MLA for Lethbridge-West. She became the Minister of Environment and Parks on May 24, 2015. She also became the Minister Responsible for the Climate Change Office on February 2nd, 2016.
Prior to being elected, Shannon worked with the Alberta Federation of Labour, as a policy analyst for five years. She was also a member of the board of directors, for five years, for the Womanspace Resource Centre, a nonprofit organization that provides referrals, resources and education to the community and to individual women. We were honoured to have MLA Shannon Phillips partner with us for this donation event.
