By Ponoka News Staff

The Ponoka Youth Centre/Boys and Girls Clubs of Wolf Creek is excited to have received funds from the Canada Post Foundation to aid in establishing a Before School Care Program in Ponoka.

The funds received from the Canada Post Foundation will assist the Ponoka Youth Centre in covering the start-up costs associated with establishing this new program in the community.

A recent survey was conducted in the community and it was found that a significant number of families in the community where in need of child care in the early hours before school.

The Ponoka Youth Centre responded to this survey by developing a Before School Care Program.

The Canada Post Foundation has agreed to assist in this endeavor by relieving some of the costs associated with the establishment of the program.

For the past 18 years Ponoka Youth Centre has been providing a safe, supportive place where children and youth can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life. The Canada Post Community Foundation for Children is committed to keep every child in Canada is happy, healthy and an integral part of the community that supports and cares for them..Since 2012, the Foundation has granted more than $8 million to more than 780 organizations.
