Three Revelstoke organizations get CBT Social Grants

Community Connections, Aboriginal Friendship Society and School District 19 all received Columbia Basin Trust Social grants

Three Revelstoke community groups received funding from the Columbia Basin Trust’s Social Grants program, the organization announced last week.

Community Connections received $82,000 to hire a coordinator to run its food recovery program and provide nutritional education resources and support for Revelstoke residents.

The Aboriginal Friendship Society received $53,700 to create a space for members to access.

The Revelstoke School District received $3,500 to start a pilot program that promotes positive mental health & wellness for students through the participation of parents, children and teachers.

The CBT announced total funding of more than $1 million for 28 projects across the basin.

“We are committed to improving the social well-being of basin residents, and our grant program works with the social sector that brings about these positive changes. It’s really quite remarkable the work that these groups take on and how it contributes to the health of all of our communities,” said Liz Gillis, Columbia Basin Trust’s manager of social initiatives.
