Squamish Rotary Club recently awarded grants to the Squamish Food Bank Society and the Squamish Seniors Centre Society.
The $10,000 grant to the Food Bank will provide support to families with young children who are struggling to make ends meet. The funds will go towards diapers, baby wipes, formula, and baby food.
The Seniors grant of $9,000 will contribute to the restoration of the Eaglewinds lawn bowling facility by replacing the grass with artificial turf. The bowling green has become derelict due to the high cost of maintenance.
Emma Cox and Abi Watson of the Squamish Food Bank Society received the grant from President Lynda Rocha.
Herbert Veseley on behalf on the Seniors Centre Society, accepted the donation from Kyla Paine, Community Service chair, and Ross Dickson, club Grant Committee.
