Two more Seniors Community Grants are being provided to social initiatives in Whitby.
The Durham Foreveryoung Activity Centre will receive $24,740 for a series of educational workshops on safety, health and well-being. The funds will also go toward a support working group for seniors in local Mandarin-speaking communities.
Saffron Hub will receive $19,400 to connect seniors cooking at home with youth volunteers as they plan a food expo in Belleville. The aim is to share recipes that have been passed down through their families.
“Seniors Community Grants are keeping our seniors fit, active, healthy and socially connected close to home, in their communities,” said Raymond Cho, minister for seniors and accessibility.
“I want to congratulate the well deserving recipients, all of whom received funding from our government’s Seniors Community Grants Funding Program,” said Whitby MPP Lorne Coe. “We all recognize that seniors across the Region of Durham have contributed so much over the course of their lives to make our Province the place we know and love today.”
