Staying active and spending time outdoors has an important role to play in helping people manage the COVID-19 pandemic in Bruce, Grey and Huron counties.
Bruce Power recognizes that and is responding with a $300,000 donation through its Be a Light: Beating COVID-19 Together campaign. The company announced last week a $1 million funding commitment to reinvigorate efforts in fighting the pandemic across Bruce, Grey and Huron counties.
From that commitment, $250,000 has been earmarked to support the maintenance and enhancement of the Kincardine Trails and the Saugeen Rail Trail, while also supporting a feasibility study into the development of a trail at Saugeen First Nation. Another $50,000 is being provided to mental health initiatives supporting the tri-county region including:
· The Canadian Mental Health Association- Grey-Bruce branch
· The Westover Treatment Centre recovery support
