Bruce Power is helping to send 107 local children and youth to camp this year through its $20,000 to Bruce Grey Child and Family Services (BGCFS).
Bruce Power has provided over $180,000 in funding to the BGCFS camp program since 2013, providing transformative experiences and lasting memories for countless children in the area. This recent contribution marks another milestone in Bruce Power’s dedication to creating opportunities for local youth and is part of ongoing efforts to empower local children in need.
“At Bruce Power, we are extremely proud to deliver clean, reliable power and produce cancer-fighting medical isotopes, but we certainly can’t do this alone,” said John Peevers, Bruce Power’s Director of Community and Media Relations, and Economic Development. “Bruce Power relies on the support of our community to operate in the Clean Energy Frontier, so we are thrilled to give back by supporting programs that broaden opportunities for local youth.”
Parents have shared overwhelmingly positive feedback about their children attending camp through BGCFS, highlighting how this opportunity has resulted in their child forming support networks with peers and counselors from Camp Presqu’ile, Glendale Farms and numerous other participating camps.
“Bruce Power has been integral to our ability to support children in Grey and Bruce having the opportunity to attend camp,” said Chad Zimmerman, Business Administrator at BGCFS. “The financial support for the Camp Program, as well as their support for other community initiatives, benefit the children, youth and families that Bruce Grey Child and Family Services work with. In addition to being a major employer for the area, the contributions to social improvements by Bruce Power are immeasurable.”
