The Heather Curling Club has received a chunk of funding from ‘Canada’s Farmers Grow Communities Program’ ...
The Club is one of 66 recipients across Canada to receive $2,500 from the charitable initiative, which is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, a philanthropic arm of Bayer.
Heather Curling Club President Anita Kuffert says while she submitted the club into the ‘Canada’s Farmers Grow Communities Program’, in order to be eligible for the funding, regional farmers had to then submit entries online and select the club as their charity of choice.
Kuffert talks about what the club plans on doing with the funds.
Another regional recipient of the funding was Beaver County Victim Services in Tofield.
According to the ‘Canada’s Farmers Grow Communities Program’, the initiative, now in its fourth full year, aims at “strengthening rural communities by equipping local non-profit organizations with funds to carry out much-needed community work.”
