The Fraser Valley Realtors Charitable Foundation (FVRCF) announced $90,000 in a second round of grants. The funds will support 10 local charities that directly work with vulnerable and marginalized youth in British Columbia’s Fraser Valley.

 

Funds to help disadvantaged youth across Fraser Valley

 

Funds received range from $2,000 to $10,000 to support work to help youth in Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, White Rock, North Delta and Mission. Programs and opportunities include those in housing, education, employment, mental health support, mentorship programs and more.
