Social Services Work program students at Northwest Community College have taken the initiative to start a bursary.
The students went to the last city council meeting and city councillor Bruce Bidgood pledged to make a donation to the Community Development fund. This is an initiative to create a bursary for future students in the SSW program.
A number of contributors have given to the fund and Bidgood received a print, which those who donate more than $75 will get, he said.
“It really is a good cause,” said Bidgood.
“Students helping students in need to complete a Social Service Worker certificate or diploma.”
