Grant supports local SAR group

Wells Gray Search and Rescue Society is receiving a Community Gaming Grant of $26,000

Wells Gray Search and Rescue Society is receiving a Community Gaming Grant of $26,000 to help the organization continue to offer important public safety services to the community.

“This organization is volunteer-driven, with members who routinely risk their own safety to protect others. We thank them for their dedication,” says Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Terry Lake. “These services can be costly, and this grant will help the society continue to assist locals and visitors who find themselves in danger.”

These grants are awarded under the Public Safety 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 Sport, Human and Social Services, Environment, and Arts and Culture.

In the 2012/13 fiscal year, the B.C. government distributed a total of $135 million in gaming grants for eligible community programs and services.

 

For organizations interested in applying for Community Gaming Grants, full application information can be found at www.pssg.gov.bc.ca/gaming.
