The High River Sunset Drive-In Is a lot more than just a place to recapture memories and watch movies from the past.

It's also a huge community supporter.

Roger Hamel says they handed out almost $10,500 dollars to 25 community groups on Sunday.

"What we do at the drive-in is that every Friday and Saturday night smaller charities, they come in and park their cars and we share the proceeds with those charities."

Each group received $419.40 from the 2022 drive-in season.

"They're charities like Baby It's Cold Outside is one of them, I just love their idea, what they're doing to help people, the Longview 4-H Beef Club, those young people are out there helping whenever they're asked, High River Handi-Bus, they're so appreciative of every dollar they get, little things like the Oddfellows Lodge here in town, I've learned what all these little charities do and they all give back."
