Chabad-Lubavitch gets approved for Community Places Grant

Mazal Tov!

We were approved today for a significant grant from Community Places Program which will help fund some important upgrades to our Youth Recreation Hall on the lower level of the Jewish Learning Centre, benefiting our daycare, school, day camp and youth groups.

The plans call for Wall Protection Panels, providing an excellent, maintenance free, impact resistant surface as well as the installation of Sound Attenuation Panels, offering an effective, permanent and attractive solution for reducing the noise due to echo to manageable levels.

Thank you to all those who took the time to submit letters of support for this project!
