The Fort St. John Child Development Centre will be reaping the benefits from the legacy fund of the 2010 Energy Conference.

On Tuesday, the City presented $50,250 to the CDC. The donation was given to support the community organization.

Penny Gagnon, executive director of the Child Development Centre appeared at City Hall to accept the donation.

Gagnon says the money will go towards the Centre’s Build-a-Fort Project. The money will also be used to purchase new toys and equipment for the children.

The Build-a-Fort Project is the name of the CDC’s building and expansion renovation project. The organization has expanded to offer a broader range of programs to meet the needs of children in the community.

City Councillor Lori Ackerman discussed how the money was designated to the CDC, stating that the City was looking for a cause that would “impact the community the most.” She also says the “CDC is definitely [a cause] that a lot of families and youths depend on.”
