Got a great idea for New West? We want to hear about it!
Applications are now open for the third year of ONE Prize, the community grant program that funds innovative, community based projects.
For 2014, Donald’s Market is contributing $6,000 to ONE Prize. This year, three $2,000 prizes will be awarded, one to a project that encourages greater social inclusion and community engagement for seniors. Project innovators can include non-profit organizations, for-profit enterprises, community groups, or individuals. The aim of ONE Prize is to kick start new projects or strengthen existing ones, rather than to fund a group’s ongoing operating costs.
Donald’s Market and River Market launched ONE Prize in 2012 as 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 ONE Prize fund. The winners are decided by members who vote for their favourite projects from a shortlist of submitted proposals. Projects can be big or small, but must contribute positively to living, working, or playing in New Westminster.
The deadline for submission is March 15. Please visit www.rivermarket.ca/oneprize for more information and the submission form. For ONE membership — which also comes with savings and perks at Donald’s Market and throughout River Market — sign up with a Donald’s Market cashier.
