Upper Clearwater Farmers’ Institute is receiving $2,500 in gaming grants, MLA Terry Lake announced Monday.

North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre in Barriere is to receive $6,500.

The two grants to groups in the North Thompson Valley were part of eight grants to organizations and non-profits in the Kamloops region totalling $227,080.

“Each of these organizations provide a vital service in our community and deserve our collective gratitude for the difference they make in the lives of so many. We are fortunate to have so many volunteers willing to give up their time to serve others,” said the Kamloops-North Thompson MLA.

Funding provided to organizations in this latest round of gaming grants supports programs that significantly contribute to the quality of life in the community, including assisting the disadvantaged or distressed, promoting health or enhancing opportunities for youth.

 

The source of funding comes from the human and social services category of gaming grants as well as from local Parent Advisory Council grants.
