Happy to help local organizations
Hey there, time traveller!

Over the last months I’ve been busy assisting and advocating for various community projects involving both people and things.
I successfully helped a dozen local organizations obtain Green Team grants to hire students, totalling over $225,000 for beautification and community programming into our area.
On top of these Green Team Grants, numerous Building Sustainable Communities grants will benefit our area:
• Gateway Recreation Centre received almost $80,000 to replace its brine tank and heat exchanger, needed to create ice for Gateway’s rinks and which needed replacing after 15 years of use;
• Sun Valley School received $19,000 for a park enhancement and community gathering space which includes nature play equipment and an outdoor classroom. Plans are in place and the project is ready to proceed;
• The Elmwood Giants received over $5,000 toward a new speaker system at Koskie Field;
• Union Gospel Mission, which helps men recovering from addictions, received $6,000 to buy new mattresses;
I should also mention that the Manitoba Camping Association, whose head office is at 1215 Henderson Hwy., has helped dozens of camps receive grants over the last months. Thankfully. camps are opening again this summer, helping families and children enjoy Manitoba’s outdoors. More info at www.mbcamping.ca
One of my favourite parts of serving our area as MLA is assisting community groups and organizations. If you want to be put on my community groups list, contact my office to receive information about future grant applications and find out about opportunities to benefit from government programs and opportunities.
