Three local charities have received $2,000 grants for their support towards seniors in our community. The grants were awarded by the District of Muskoka Council Chambers and were given to Elder Abuse Prevention Muskoka, YWCA Muskoka, and Muskoka Seniors Home Assistance. Funding came from the Smart and Caring Muskoka Fund and will go towards the many initiatives that help seniors in our area.
