“The money’s available, we’d like to give it away,” said CAO Andrew Young, noting funds can be either given to one non-profit or split between two for $3,500 each.

District council has decided the funds will likely be given to the Peace Community Church and The Church of the Good Shepherd. 

“They’re the best way to get these funds out,” said Coun. Brent Taillefer.
