The Summerland Rotary Club is one of five South Okanagan organizations to receive money from the province’s Community Gaming Grants.
The grant funding, announced earlier this week, will provide $20,000 to the service club.
The money is part of $104,850 to South Okanagan organizations. The other four organizations to benefit are all in Penticton.
Around the province 300 recipients will share in $12,971,805 in the latest rounds of grants. Recipients include programs for human and social services, arts and culture and environment.
“These gaming grants allow local organizations to provide social services that directly benefit our community. I am pleased to see that the government cares for the future of these organizations and the people that rely on them,” said Penticton MLA Bill Barisoff.
Over the past fiscal year, the province distributed a total of $135 million in grants to more than 5,300 community groups.
