The Orangeville Seniors Citizen Centre and GottaRunRacing are getting a financial boost from the Town of Orangeville.

Through the Town’s annual Community Grants Program, Orangeville Council unanimously approved applications from both not-for-profit groups on Monday (June 27), totalling $17,000.

The senior centre is receiving $15,000 for the installation of automatic doors and openers on three interior doors.

Meanwhile, GottaRunRacing will use $2,000 to purchase a “participant swag item” for the 10th Annual Island Lake Classic Run, being held September 5.

“The swag item will include the Vicki Barron Trail which forms a heart shape that will tie in with the Town of Orangeville’s ‘Love, Orangeville’ tourism campaign,” states the report on 2022 Community Grants, presented to Town Council at their June 27 meeting.

The 2022 Community Grants Program started at the beginning of the year with an $80,000 pot and is down to $5,000 remaining for the year.

It’s not too late for not-for-profit organizations to apply and get their share.
