On March 8, 2021, Township of Hamilton Mayor Bill Cane presented the $1000.00 Enbridge Gas Inc. Giving Back to Communities Grant to Community Works of Hamilton Township.
Enbridge has a long-standing history of giving back to the communities they service. The Giving Back to Communities Grant is given to charitable organizations and non-profits to help support them during this time of need so they may continue to play an integral role in responding to COVID-19 in their communities.
Community Works of Hamilton Township is a volunteer organization established in 2006 and is housed in the Bewdley Community Centre in Bewdley, ON. The organization serves as the local food bank for the Township of Hamilton and also offers a selection of clothing, toiletries, and small housewares. Community Works is funded entirely by donations from individuals, churches, service clubs, and corporations and has remained open throughout the COVID-19 Pandemic. Northumberland County’s Food4All and the Feed Ontario food boxes help to partially supply food to the organization.
Community Works is currently serving 60 to 70 households which represents approximately 135 to 150 individuals. During the Christmas Holiday Season, Community Works provides approximately 130 food hampers to local families and personalized gift bags to 75 to 80 local children.
Community Works Co-Chairs, Sandra Bell-Buttars and Carol Ann Moore Ede, accepted the $1000.00 Enbridge Gas Giving Back to the Communities Grant presented by Mayor Cane on behalf of Enbridge Gas. Community Works of Hamilton Township is very grateful to Enbridge for the donation that will continue to feed and support its food bank families.
