Our community has always been known as the helping hand with one another and another generous donation really helped out two local not-for-profits.

The Drumheller Grace House and Salvation Army were approached by the local Pizza Hut to combine forces to sell pizza and water on Canada Day.

"Tony (Ibrahim) made a commitment to the community when he started this business that he wanted to support the community. This is one of those opportunities where he was able to step up to that plate, chose two non-profits, which were the Grace House and the Salvation Army, and we went down and sold pizza on Canada Day," stated Joseph Legacy, Executive Director for the Drumheller Society of Recovery.

Legacy reported to 99.5 Drum FM that although Mother Nature brought the heat, it was a fantastic event.

"Tony, myself and various members of the Salvation Army were down there all day on Canada Day getting pizza and water out. I was very impressed with Tony's team there, they were trucking pizza's back and forth by the car load."

The event brought in $680.00 for Grace House.

"It's great to be part of the community of Drumheller and partnering up with members of this community, it just shows the support our community really has," Legacy concluded.
