The Nawican Friendship Centre will receive its annual gaming grant to pay for their hot meals program, according to a B.C. government press release.
"The Nawican Friendship Centre is an important asset to the community of Dawson Creek, providing many important services in our community," said Peace River South MLA Blair Lekstrom in a press release. "This $42,000 gaming grant will help support their hot food program and recognizes their dedication to our community."
The centre was one of 181 recipients this year that will receive help from the Community Gaming Grant, which is made up of funds derived from government taxing gambling.
