Valley First set out to make a big impact for Canada's 150th birthday by contributing $50,000 to a worthy cause. Using the Volinspire platform they had different organizations pitch their story to a wider public audience who ultimately would narrow the field. From there a committee evaluated the shortlisted submissions and chose The Foundry Kelowna as the beneficiary of the funds.
The Foundry provides a fresh and integrated approach to mental healthcare in a system that often neglects or makes seeking help cumbersome.
VideoResearch Producer/Videographer Chris Stenberg was on hand as the Valley First team surprised them with the news and followed up with the subsequent shooting and interviews for this video.
