Huge thank you to No Frills with assisting Oliver Parks and Recreation’s Anyone Can Join Program!
No Frills store campaign raised $1,164.00 – thank you customers and store employees for all your efforts! You’ve made it possible for more members of our community to be able to participate in Recreation programs that are unable to financially do so.
At Oliver Parks and Recreation we don’t want to see anyone left out. To promote participation in programs there are a few financial assistance options available.
Anyone Can Join Anyone Can Join is a sponsorship program supported by local organizations like OOWA, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch #97 and the Oliver Elks to provide financial assistance to Oliver/Area “C” children, youth and adults towards registration into recreation programs of their choice, up to $150 per person per calendar year. Families or individuals in need of assistance are asked to complete and submit an application form at the Oliver Community Centre. Each form is reviewed in confidence by the Recreation Supervisor and applicants are registered directly into the program using funds provided by sponsors.
Who we fund is simple: Kids. Kids who want to get active. Kids who want to learn a new sport or activity. Kids who want to keep up with a sport or activity they already enjoy. But these kids just need a little extra financial help to get their name on the roster. Kids aged 4 to 18 from families in financial need can receive funding to help with registration fees, equipment and/or transportation. www.jumpstart.canadiantire.ca
