Groups receive gaming grants
Mentoring, youth and community programs are getting $133,000 in Community Gaming Grants from the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.
These grants help fund programs run by the Kin Club of Cranbrook ($25,000), the Blue Lake Forest Education Society ($44,000), Big Brothers Big Sisters Of Cranbrook ($31,000), the Cranbrook Boys and Girls Club ($29,000), and the Moyie Community Association ($4,000).
“These Grants are an investment in one of our communities’ greatest assets – our young people” said Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett. “Through mentoring and youth programs, prime time after school programs, supporting families in need, sharing the experience of our great outdoors, and building a strong connected community, these dedicated organizations will continue to make a positive impact in our community.”
