Emergency Community Support Funding for Local Organizations

Published on August 28, 2020

These past few months have definitely been hard ones, particularly for the most vulnerable in our communities. United Way Leeds & Grenville and Brockville and Area Community Foundation have done great work to provide support for local organizations in partnership with federal programs.

I was pleased to join Trish Buote and Erik Wang as they presented funding to The Brockville and Area Food Bank for Operation Harvest Sharing. Amanda Warner & Joanne Sytsma (co-chairs) and Tony Barnes (treasurer) received the cheque and also took time to update me on the needs of the community. Thank you!

RNJ Youth Services is a great local organization providing help to young people - so important at any time and particularly during this covid pandemic! I was honoured to join Sue Poldervaart (RNJ), Trish Buote (United Way Leeds & Grenville) and Erik Wang (Brockville and Area Community Foundation) as they presented funding through the federal Emergency Community Support program. Thanks for all you do for Brockville and area!
