The semi-finalists for the Tbaytel for Good 2018 Fall Campaign are set and a few local programs have made the cut!
"Through the Tbaytel for Good Community Fund, we look to the people and communities in Tbaytel’s neighbourhood to tell us about the good work happening all around them. Our hope is that they will share their vision for a better and brighter Northern Ontario by submitting project ideas for funding consideration – projects that could make an even bigger difference with Tbaytel’s support behind them."
Vying for $1500.00 is:
Community Family Fun DayKeewatin Public School, Keewatin
Keewatin Public School has a goal of ensuring all of its students can attend swimming lessons, which are not covered by existing funding. Since 2017, the school has hosted a Family Fun Day to raise funds to help offset the cost of sending students to swimming lessons. The school would like to purchase a large tent, as well as a few smaller tents, to use for the event each year to help make their event a success, especially in the event of poor weather.
Looking for $5,000.00 are:
Everyone Curls Kenora Curling Club, Kenora
Everyone Curls is an initiative that focuses on building participation in the sport of curling at the Kenora Curling Club and the community. Through the purchase of storage, teaching, technical and participant equipment, as well as facility rental, the club's ultimate goal in Everyone Curls is to introduce the community to curling, increase and sustain participation, increase membership and club viability, making curling a sport that can be enjoyed at all levels of participation.
