Community Care celebrates 100th anniversary

CKTB - NEWS - Community Care

A community support organization has just passed a major milestone.

Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold celebrated their 100th anniversary yesterday with an Open House.

Housing Programs & Services Manager Katherine Livingston highlighted several programs they offer including utility support services, the RentSmart program, and ID clinics.

She says after a hundred years, the need is still very strong. "It is a sign of the times, the need is growing, the issues are growing, things are more complex, and there are less resources to go around for everybody."

To find out more about the many services offered at Community Care, visit their website.

Meanwhile, the Niagara IceDogs are hosting a turkey drive for Community Care today.

Anyone who donates a frozen, grade A, non-basted turkey at the Real Canadian Superstore on Louth Street between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. will get a four pack of tickets to an upcoming game.
