We are excited to announce the finalists for this year’s ONE Prize, the community fund created just for New West.
With 19 terrific homegrown community projects submitted for this year’s grant money, it was difficult to narrow the field. After much deliberation, the jury — including staff from Donald’s Market and River Market, as well as three community members — has decided on a shortlist. Now it’s up to current ONE members — whose shopping dollars comprise the fund — to choose the winners.
ONE Prize, launched by Donald’s Market and River Market, is a community fund for New Westminster. When ONE members shop at Donald’s Market, the grocery store contributes 1% of every dollar spent to the community fund. This year, it’s added up to $6,000 in prize money.
The three projects that receive the most votes from ONE members will be awarded the $2000 prize each. One of the prizes will go to a project that encourages greater social inclusion and community engagement for seniors.
Read more about the six shortlisted projects! Current ONE Members are voting by online ballot. ONE Prize winners will be announced in early May.
