Nawican Friendship Centre receives $42,000 gaming grant

"The Nawican Friendship Centre is an important asset to the community of Dawson Creek, providing many important services in our community," says Peace River South MLA Blair Lekstrom. "This $42,000 gaming grant will help support their hot food program and recognizes their dedication to our community."

The Centre received $42,000 in 2011/2012, which was an increase from their previous funding.
 
The Nawican Friendship Centre was incorporated in 1971 with the intention of bridging the gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in the region. It provides counselling, information, resources, guidance and programs, including the hot meals program.
