This year, Hospice Niagara and Gillian's Place have been selected to receive CAA Niagara's Community Boost funding. In addition to a $10,000 financial contribution, the charities will receive promotional assistance, volunteerism, decals on two new fleet vehicles, and other forms of support.
CAA Niagara has a strong history of improving the lives of people in our region. Over the past few decades, CAA Niagara has donated everything from Jaws of Life to fire departments to mini tow trucks at the Niagara Safety Village.
In 2018, CAA Niagara decided to pool its donations and significant sponsorship dollars to fund a new, more focused corporate giving program, now known as CAA Niagara Community Boost.
