Surrey – On Thursday evening, September 14, FVN’s News Director Don Lehn returned (for the fourth year) to help MC the SurreyCares Youth Grant Awards.
From their website: SurreyCares Community Foundation works to improve the quality of life for all area residents through the growth and stewardship of permanent endowment funds and the distribution of income to a broad range of eligible organizations and activities.
Their vision is to lead a stronger, more meaningful, inclusive community connection into the future, and to build a resilient and resourceful community. We encourage contributions to a community endowment and the earnings flow back to worthwhile community causes in the form of grants.
Kudos to the organizers including, Jeff Hector, Coast Capital Savings Credit Union, Mike Bose, John Lawson and Karen Young.
The SurreyCares Grant Awards was again at the Surrey Arts Centre.
