Grants for Delta groups

Children and families in Delta will benefit from a $92,000 Community Gaming Grant given to the Reach Child and Youth Development Society.

Another gaming grant for $85,000 will help the Delta branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association, which will use the money to fund programs for children and youth as well as for training and education.

The B.C. government has also awarded grants to the following Delta organizations this year:

• Pony Pals Therapeutic Riding Association received $30,000.

• Knights of Columbus, Immaculate Conception Council 12118 received $10,000 to assist with its Community Donation Program.

• Sunshine Hills Parent Participation Preschool received $7,000 for its preschool program.

• The Lions Club of Tsawwassen-Boundary Bay received $11,500.

• Scouts Canada – 3rd Boundary Bay received $7,100.

• The Lutins Du Bois French language preschool received $6,300.

“As a longtime resident of Delta, I’ve seen firsthand how important these organizations are to our community,” said Delta-North MLA Scott Hamilton. “This money will help Delta continue to be a great place to call home.”

These grants were awarded under the Human and Social Services category of the Community Gaming Grant Program, which allows non-profit organizations to apply for provincial gaming revenues.

Gaming grants are also awarded in the categories of Public Safety, Environment, and Arts and Culture.
