The Cowichan Valley Performing Arts Foundation received a 2-thousand dollar grant from Peninsula Co-op toward their bursary and scholarship program to help local kids pursue their passions in performing arts.
Board Member Leanne Schultz says support for fine arts programming in school has significantly gone down over the last few years.
Schultz talks about the numerous benefits to supporting performing arts in youth.
The Foundation has assisted over 100 Cowichan Valley kids through their programming. More information on their grant programs and how you can donate, visit their website.
