Released by Marc Wang, BC Liberal Caucus
ive organizations in Chilliwack and the eastern Fraser Valley will share $165,550 in the latest round of gaming grants released today by the provincial government. They are:
"These five groups provide vital services to families in our community, and grants are very important to helping them succeed in making Chilliwack a safer place to live, work and play," said Chilliwack MLA John Les in a news release last week.
"Many of the search and rescue personnel who work so hard to keep our region
safe are volunteering their time and energy without the thought of financial
compensation. Through these grants, we're making sure they can continue to
provide the exemplary, invaluable service our community needs," said
Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner.
