The Mustard Seed Kamloops has received $25,000 from the BC Interior Community Foundation and the federal government’s Emergency Community Support Fund. The money will be used to support the social agency’s advocacy work.
“The funding will go a long way, helping the people we serve find ways to get back on their feet through our advocacy work,” said Mario Borba, managing director of The Mustard Seed Kamloops. “We walk alongside people to help them achieve their goals from obtaining identification to securing employment and housing. It’s about nourishing the glimmer of hope people have into new beginnings.
