What we have done…

Edmonton Public Schools Foundation Announcement

November 28, 2019 was a very exciting day as The Westman Charitable Foundation came to Beacon Heights Elementary School in NE Edmonton and announced their generous donation of $375,000 to The Edmonton Public School Foundation in support of full day Kindergarten in Edmonton. Jayman BUILT Edmonton also donated $2000 to the school showing our support.  As part of the announcement, a Reading Rally was held where 32 Jayman employees attended, stuffed bags full of gifts for the Grade 1 and 2 classes, and then read a few books with the students.  A very special guest reader (Jay Westman) read The Most Magnificent Thing book to all of us and the students. I am sure we can all imagine the great expression and enthusiasm Jay exudes while reading!

After living with the disease for nearly 25 years, Diana Joseph is accustomed to hearing that she “doesn’t seem like someone with multiple sclerosis.” Her answer to that is, invariably, “You should have seen me 10 years ago.”
