By Rosalind Russell – The Cameco Fund for Mental Health has awarded a total of $19,000 in grants to five organizations in Blind River working on mental health projects.
According to company General Manager Terry Davis it is the second year the company has donated money raised from its annual Blind River Refinery Cameco Charity Golf Tournament with $19,000 raised at this year’s event.
He adds following a call for funding applications in October, submissions were judged by a panel of representatives from Cameco, local mental health experts and the Saskatoon Community Foundation which administers the grants.
Davis adds the local groups receiving a grant this year include Blind River Public School, the Huron Shores Family Health Team, W.C. Eaket Secondary School, Huron Superior Catholic District School and The Well Ministries.
