Boys and Girls Club Okanagan received a $25,000 cheque from Rogers Communication this week.
The company awarded its Ted Rogers Community Grants to organizations across the country, including 10 in B.C. that totalled $150,000. The $25,000 the Boys and Girls Club Okanagan received was the most handed out to a B.C. organization. Victoria Youth Empowerment Society also got $25,000.
“As organizations across B.C. continue to face challenges due to the pandemic, support from Ted Rogers Community Grants are helping them provide critical programs for youth in our communities,” Rogers Communications B.C. president Rick Sellers said in a press release. “This year, that support is more important than ever before, and we are proud to lean in to help the next generation of youth achieve their dreams through the pandemic and beyond.”
The grants are given to organizations that specialize in programs that promote innovation, entrepreneurship, mentorship and community leadership.
