NU2U Thrift Store - 2017 Fall Grant Allocations

Olds council approved the fall 2017 NU2U grant allocations earlier this week. The organizations receiving grant money this fall from NU2U are $5000 to the Olds & District Hospice Society, $6150 to Olds High School and $2000 to the Youth Empowerment (YES) Program. Councillor Mary-Jane Harper noted during the Monday, December 11th meeting that since 2011 over $206,000 dollars has been redistributed by NU2U to other community groups & organizations.

The NU2U Thrift Store continues to be committed to supporting community initiatives.
 
Michelle Honeyman, Manager of Community Services with the town of Olds, says twice a year they take grant applications from community groups and dollars are then allocated based on revenue from the thrift store.
 
She adds, once all of the NU2U store's expenses are paid out then all of the money from it is given out to community grants or put in a reserve to give out at a later date.
 
 
At Monday's meeting, Olds council approved the three grant allocations for this fall. Organizations receiving money are the Olds & District Hospice Society, Olds High School and the Youth Empowerment (YES) Program.
 
The NU2U Thrift Store is located at 5030 51st Street in Olds and it is open Tuesday through Friday from noon until 5pm.
