Groups get Trillium cash

Eight Mississauga organizations will receive more than $1 million in the latest round of grants handed by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
The successful recipients are:
• the Dixie Bloor Neighbourhood Drop-In Centre;
• the Square One Older Adult Centre;
• the Mississauga Girls Hockey League;
• the Mississauga Ramblers Cricket Sports & Cultural Club;
• the Mississauga-Meadowvale Community Support Fund;
• the Springfield Tennis Club;
• the Oplenac Serbian Cultural Association of Metropolitan Toronto & Mississauga;
• and, the Citizens for the Advancement of Community Development.
The largest grant went to Dixie Bloor Neighbourhood Drop-In Centre, which is getting $375,000 over five years to offer a wide range of culturally-specific recreational opportunities for newcomer youth or those who may be isolated from age-appropriate activities in this high-needs neighbourhood.
The second largest grant went to the Square One Older Adult Centre, which will receive $219,000 over three years to expand the programming in northwest Mississauga.
On the sports front, the Mississauga Girls Hockey League and the Mississauga Ramblers received $200,000 and $99,700 respectively.
“The money will be used by our club to purchase ground maintenance equipment and to provide practice areas to increase the number of players,” said Ramblers spokesman Surinder Puri.
The grants were announced on Nov. 30. More than $35.7 million in Trillium grants were awarded to 491 province-wide groups.
