Now the United Way is seeking applications for the fund’s second $5,000 grant—for a distinct project to “address an emerging or changing need in the City of Kawartha Lakes.” The deadline for submitting a Letter of Intent is noon on Oct. 24.
A volunteer review team will look at the Letters of Intent and issue invitations to selected applicants who pass the prescreening process.
The $30,000 fund is named after Mona Hall, a Lindsay resident who left a bequest to Lifeline Telecare Lindsay several years ago that helped establish Telecare’s Reassurance Calls program. When Telecare ceased operations it turned over some of its funds to United Way CKL, who is extending Mona Hall’s wishes through annual grants over approximately five years.
“This bequest has special meaning as United Way CKL was the consistent funder of Telecare Lindsay,” says Penny Barton Dyke, Executive Director.
