Room to Live Campaign get's a boost from Nelson Council

The Room to Live Campaign in Nelson will receive a boost in its final stretch of fundraising for the Nelson Cares Society Renewal of Ward Street Place, an affordable housing block.

There's only 45-thousand dollars left of the project's 690-thousand dollar goal and this week City Council approved 15-thousand dollars in matching donations.

Councillor Janice Morrison is the Chair of the Housing Committee.

She says council saw an opportunity to help complete a project.

The donation comes from the City's Affordable Housing Fund.
