The Vanderhoof Community Foundation is pleased to announce the recipient of our 2020 Grant.


This grant was used to upgrade the hall by adding eavestroughs to the hall for added safety to those entering and exiting the building and to prevent ice build up on the roof. In addition, the Association was able to purchase an upright freezer, a kitchen cart and a popcorn machine. These appliances will ensure food safety, a safer way to set up and put away dishes, cutlery and cooking utensils at hall events. The popcorn machine will provide another way to raise funds for the club.
