MISSION – New Democrat MLAs Pam Alexis and Bob D’Eith say a community grant to a not-for-profit in Mission will help an organization to buy equipment and build or renovate their facilities in order to improve their services for people.

“Child care is a top priority for our government, and it’s great that we’re able to support the Mission Association for Community Living with this funding that will help them fill their new hub with fun, educational, and accessible toys,” said Pam Alexis, MLA for Abbotsford-Mission.

The Mission Association for Community Living Society will be receiving $179,290 in order to help purchase two accessible busses as well as furniture, toys, and other programming needs for the creation of a childcare and early years hub with the City of Mission.

“It’s great when different levels of government and local organizations can work together to improve services for people. This child care and early years hub will be a great asset to kids and parents in our community,” said Bob D’Eith, MLA for Maple Ridge-Mission.

The Community Gaming Grants program is providing $5.3 million to 49 not-for-profit that will allow them to make improvements, so that they can keep on delivering services to people.

This funding is part of the $140 million distributed annually to not-for-profit organizations that deliver services and make life better for people throughout British Columbia.
