Milton’s St. Paul’s United Church was on the receiving end of a pair of provincial grants amounting to more than $50,000.
The church received a $42,300 grant from Ontario Trillium Foundation to install a full-height partition wall in its community building, which will enable it to provide more below-market rental space to Milton’s many non-profit community groups.
St. Paul’s is the largest provider of below-market rental space in the community. The full-height partition wall, which was installed last month, is permitting additional local not-for-profit organizations to have a place to support Miltonians and others with a wider variety of community services.
“The fact that our government is supporting St. Paul’s United Church with funding is great news for our community,” said Milton MPP Parm Gill.
The second grant was $10,000 from the Province of Ontario to install a new door system in the community building and sanctuary.
“On behalf of Church Council, the members of St. Paul’s United Church and our many rental clients, I want to thank the Province of Ontario for developing this grant program and supporting our efforts to make visiting the community Building or the Sanctuary the best possible experience,” said John Challinor II, Chairman, Church Council, St. Paul’s United Church. “Provincial staff were great to work with on this initiative and we are already seeing the benefits of the installation of the new door system.”
