Grant Partner Testimonial: Lady Ballers Camp

7/6/2017 11:22:29 AM
"For the 2017 summer camp session taking place in Brampton, we reached out to the only family shelter in Brampton, Salvation Army Family Life Resource Centre, as well as the Peel Family Shelter in Mississauga. We also reached out and received tremendous interest from several subsidized housing apartments in the Brampton/ Mississauga area. The partnership grant with MLSE and Just Energy Foundation allowed us to hire a school bus for the second year in a row. This school bus made it possible for us to provide transportation for campers from both shelters as well as other campers from low income households who did not have access to secure transportation. The campers from the shelters are also able to access the camp at no cost to the families because of the grant. Due to the overwhelming interest in the summer camp this year, we have extended the capacity of campers that we can accommodate and this grant has made it possible to fund the extra costs we have incurred through supplies, materials, space, staff etc."
