BC Hydro will provide a grant to the Salvation Army Williams Lake Community and Family Service

BC Hydro will be providing a $5,000 grant to the Salvation Army Williams Lake Community and Family Services.

Last year, BC Hydro contributed $40,000 to Northern non-profits, registered charities, and community organizations.

The $5,000 grant will go to support a project promoting energy efficiency and funds are being delivered through BC Hydro’s Community grant program, which helps to ensure local organizations are committed to making a difference within their communities.

The BC Hydro grant will allow the Williams Lake Salvation Army to replace 275 fluorescent lights with more energy efficient LED bulbs. This will reduce costs while also allowing the organization to contribute more to their community programs.

The Salvation Army Williams Lake Family Services was established in 1982 as a safe social centre that offers counseling services. The establishment also offers the community’s only weekday drop-in centre with a full gym.
