Ontario Trillium Foundation & Mohawk College collaborate on community building project

The Ontario Trillium Foundation and Mohawk College are joining forces to carry out an annual community building project in Hamilton.


One of the Foundation’s successful capital grant applicants will benefit from the involvement of students and faculty from Mohawk's Building Renovation Technician program. Approximately 100 students and faculty will volunteer their time and talent to carry out the renovations the last two weeks of March.


The partnership is the first of its kind between the Trillium Foundation and an Ontario community college.


Mohawk Professor Brad MacDonald has involved his students in an annual renovation project that past four years. The most recent project was completed last month with St. Peter's HARRRP Community Centre in the city's North End.


Nonprofits interested in being chosen for the community builders project are asked to register online and attend an information session on Wednesday, May 9 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Hamilton Spectator Auditorium (44 Frid Street). 


Application deadline is July 1.
