The annual grant from the Nico Hawryliw Fund was presented to Boys and Girls Clubs of the Battlefords recently.
The Nico Hawryliw Fund was established in 2011 and previous grants from the fund have supported local needs including health, home care and Battlefords Trade and Education Centre.
This year’s grant of $1,237 will help the club continue providing their much-needed after-school programming.
“We are pleased to support the work of the club as they help so many families in our community,” said Allison Hawryliw, Nico’s mother.
Battlefords and District Community Foundation currently manages more than 25 funds that will contribute to a range of interests from the arts and health care to post-secondary scholarships and recreation. BDCF will distribute over $50,000 in annual community grants and scholarships this year. To date, their donors have provided over $1,300,000 to community groups and projects.
