Seven local registered charities are on the receiving end of some much-needed funds.

The Prince George Community Foundation (PGCF) is awarding these organizations as part of it’s seasonal round of grants for the Spring, pooling together at more than $46,000.

The money is set to go towards certain projects to better each other’s services.

This ups the PGCF’s total number of funds distributed to community-led, non-profit initiatives to more than $2.4 million since 1995.

Physical distancing measures surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic have prevented the Foundation from hosting a formal gathering to celebrate the charities and hand over the physical cheques.
