The South Okanagan Similkameen Volunteer Centre Society will receive $62,500 for its programs, the Penticton Early Childhood Education Society will get $13,750 to help fund its nursery, and the Canadian Mental Health Association’s South Okanagan Similkameen Branch will get $32,000 to provide meals to clients.

“Organizations like the South Okanagan Similkameen Volunteer Centre Society serve our communities tirelessly, providing help and services to those who are most in need,” said MLA Dan Ashton.
