- “Entrepreneur makes $150,000 donation to help Danzig Street community”: Entrepreneur Akanimo Udofia makes a substantial donation to give the residents of our Kingston-Galloway neighbourhood the tools they need to develop themselves and prosper. The donation will be administered by the ESBGC, and involve the establishment of an educational and recreational community centre, as well the establishment of two scholarships.
- Cabinet ministers announce $2.5 million expansion of after-school programs: Margarett Best, Michael Chan, and Laurel Broten visit the ESBGC to announce a significant expansion of after-school programs, designed to boost physical activity, nutritive awareness, and youth’s self-esteem.
