JD Collision | More Than Just an Autobody Shop, We’re Helping Out In Our Community
We’re not just your regular autobody shop that fools around with cars 24/7 – we also like to make some time to give back to the community that’s been supporting us for the past 40 years!
In the past few weeks we’ve done our part to support two local ladies take their careers to the next level:
We sponsored long-jumper Natalie Thompson on her athletic journey, and we are thrilled to report that she did great! Natalie jumped 11.71m in the Triple Jump, breaking her personal best and finishing first in a competition in which she was the only one under-18. In Long Jump, she finished third behind two twenty-year-olds. She qualified for the Team Alberta (Under 21) and will be travelling to Winnipeg for the Canadian Summer Games in early August!
Riwa Kamaleddine is the current Miss East Central Alberta and perhaps a future Miss Canada—we certainly hope so! Twenty-year-old Riwa got into pageantry out of curiosity and seems to have found her calling. She’s going to be travelling to Toronto to compete against sixty other young women for the chance to represent Canada in the Miss World competition. Riwa is taking the pageant very seriously—the recent business school grad is working two jobs while also raising funds for the Children’s Wish Foundation. You can follow her on Facebook and donate to the Foundation on her behalf at the Bonnyville Dove Centre.
If you know any Lakeland individuals or organizations who need a helping hand then let us know. We’re always happy to help!
