Thank you to W.H Croxford High School Fine Arts and MDC Class for creating 3 amazing videos to highlight ADVAS and the work we do.
W.H. Croxford students and Social Media teacher Vern Gray accept an honorarium from Airdrie and District Victims Assistance Society (ADVAS) Executive Director Angela Wright for the videos they’ve created highlighting awareness and the need for donations.
ADVAS approached the Rocky View high schools in late 2016 with a proposal to develop a social media clip intended to engage our talented youth who may not be aware of ADVAS supports and services and our partnerships with the RCMP, criminal justice system and community resources. The W.H. Croxford students took on the challenge and created three social media clips to increase donation and awareness regarding the programs and services available to all members of our community who may be impacted by crime or tragedy. These videos can be viewed on the ADVAS Facebook page.
