Prince Rupert Regional Community Foundation to hold AGM Sunday

An opportunity to learn more about an organization dedicated towards improving the community comes up this Sunday at the Lester Centre, as the Prince Rupert Regional Community Foundation hosts its Annual General Meeting.

The event takes place Sunday at 2 PM in the lobby of the Lester Centre and will highlight some of the work of the last year, as well as to outline what plans the foundation has for the year ahead.

The foundation was first formed in 2001 and since then has been committed to working with other agencies, foundations and organizations to increase the level of charitable work in the communities of the North Coast.

Whether through grant opportunities, or high profile fund raising events, the Foundation has quickly found its place in the community and rallied many to lend a hand with their work.

Among some of the areas that those in attendance on Sunday may hear more of could be the success of their grant program as part of the Canada 150 festivities, as well as their plans to raise funds in the community for future initiatives.

A look at some of their past activities can be found from our archives over the last few years.
