Two organizations that provide important social services in the Shuswap are receiving $53,000 from the B.C. government’s Community Gaming Grant Program.
The Eagle Valley Community Support Society (Sicamous) received $38,000, while the Salmon Arm 4-H Advisory Council was awarded $15,000
“Whether it’s helping families get through some tough times or empowering youth to be leaders in the community, these two groups contribute a lot to the Shuswap,” says Shuswap MLA Greg Kyllo. “These grants will help them continue to offer services that help people develop life skills and improve their well-being.”
The grants were awarded under the Human and Social Services category of the Community Gaming Grant Program.
