On September 24th the Muskoka Community Foundation announced the recipients of the 2019 Smart and Caring Muskoka Fund.  This year’s grant recipients are Muskoka Seniors, Muskoka Parry Sound Sexual Assault Service, Muskoka Women’s Advocacy Group and the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation.  In total, $15,600.00 was awarded to help support a variety of projects geared to this year’s theme of mental health and wellness. 

Lynn DeCaro, Executive Director of the Muskoka Community Foundation says that “while working on the 2018 Muskoka Vital Signs Report it became very clear that organizations in Muskoka were identifying the need to increase mental health and wellness supports throughout their programming.  We felt it was important to make this the theme for the 2019 Smart and Caring Muskoka Fund.”
