The Rob McLandress Make a Dream Come True Fund was made possible through a bequest to Community Living Chatham-Kent by the late Father James Williams. Father Williams was an ongoing supporter of the work of Community Living Chatham-Kent and his bequest was made in honour of Rob McLandress, whose family he was very close to.
The Fund will accept applications from persons who have an intellectual disability to assist them to make a dream a reality for them. The applications will be reviewed by a committee and two awards of $1,000 each will be granted annually. Applications were accepted this year until August 20th, and must be submitted by this date to be considered. Individuals will be advised of their status during Community Living Month (for 2020 it is September).
The chosen recipients was announced at our Flag Raising on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 and the recipients are Kyle Bunney and Tracey Major. Congratulations to you both!
