Northumberland, ON – Monday, June 26, 2023 – Earlier this afternoon, local MPP David Piccini met with the team at Community Care Northumberland (CCN) at the Timber House Resort (Brighton) to offer congratulations and support for essential funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Community Care Northumberland is grateful to receive a $99,000 grant from the Resilient Communities Fund from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF).
“This investment by the Ontario Trillium Foundation is great news for many in our community,” said David Piccini, MPP for Northumberland-Peterborough-South. “There are about 5000 residents of Northumberland that use Community Care Northumberland’s programs and services everyday, so this grant will impact many in our community who will benefit from these services.”
This grant will be used to implement a new strategic plan, purchase IT equipment, enable additional staff and volunteer training and support new volunteer recruitment strategies and tools.
“The impact of this Ontario Trillium Foundation grant cannot be overstated,” said Trish Baird, CEO of CCN. “This grant has allowed us to continue to support essential service needs in our community, including Transportation, Meals on Wheels, Wellness, Home Help and Hospice Services to individuals and families in Northumberland County. We also want to congratulate the Ontario Trillium Foundation on 40 years of granting and building healthy and vibrant communities across the province.”
