2015 SurreyCares Grant Competition Winners

Surrey, BC – How Surrey charities aid our community with SurreyCares awards.

13 charities showcase how 2015 SurreyCares grants enable services.

Children at-risk or victimized by violence or sexual exploitation, and people with medical, physical or developmental disabilities will be among the broad range of people benefitting from the awards granted to 13 charitable winners of the 2015 grant competition by SurreyCares foundation.

The public and journalists are invited to see the heart-warming stories from 13 award-winning charities showcasing how their wonderful work is actively benefiting Surrey’s diverse population. The Nov 19 celebration of the $50,000 2015 competition marks the next stage for SurreyCares after last year’s million-dollar milestone of grants given to more than 120 different charities since 1997.
