The Co-op till tape program has been making waves within the Drumheller Valley. 
On January 27, the local Co-op presented multiple clubs donation cheques from funds raised within the till tape program. 
"It's been going on for a very long time. I'm not actually familiar with when it started, but it gives everybody the opportunity to help their club out. All they need to do is save their till tapes, they total them up, bring them in and we give them money for it," outlined Brent Walker, General Manager for the Drumheller Co-op. 
There were 41 groups in total that received a cheque through this program that ranged from $11 to $1,089, with a total of $13,853.13. 
"That's quite normal from what I understand, right around the $20,000 mark annually. It's over $300,000 now since we've started this program," added Walker. 
In August, the Drumheller Co-op donated $6,442.62, bringing the grand total up to $20,295 in 2016. 
"There's no real skill to it. Whatever purchases you have, keep your till tapes, have someone total them up and twice a year we hand cheques out to them," Walker explained.
