Tbaytel for Good Community Fund

six community projects funded

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO November 18, 2019 (LSN) The fall 2019 Tbaytel for Good Community Fund campaign came to a close on Nov. 8, 2019 with six community projects now able to put a total of $14,000 to great use for northern Ontario. Tbaytel celebrated with winning groups and organizations earlier today at St. Martin Elementary School in Thunder Bay

St. Martin will be able to organize and increase the way it gives back to students at its school through the Mustangs’ Blessing Cupboard as one of the $1,500 winners of the Tbaytel for Good Community fund. The cupboard will now be full of everything from food to winter coats for those students in need.  “The Mustangs’ Blessing Cupboard was an entirely student-driven initiative. We are so proud of our students who saw some of their friends in need and found a wonderful opportunity to help them through the Tbaytel For Good Community Fund,” says Grade 6 French Immersion teacher Lisa Auger.  Applicants had two weeks to engage their communities and encourage the public to vote for their submissions. The 10 semi-finalists in the $1,500 and $5,000 categories received a combined total of 189,239 votes.  “With more than 40 entries from all across the region we serve, Tbaytel is proud of those community members who stand up time and time again to create these incredible initiatives that the Tbaytel for Good Community Fund is honoured to support. We are always so inspired by the diversity and

It will purchase equipment and supplies to get its Blessing Cupboard up and running.
