The Gathering Place wishes to extend our thankfulness to the many organizations and individuals locally, provincially and federally who continue to support us through this pandemic. Entering Stage 3 for reopening in September 2020 came to us with  unexpected costs and we are grateful for the grant received from the Emergency Community Support Fund. Our program adaptations for current and future pandemic protocols is supported by the Government of Canada’s Emergency Community Support Fund, the Thunder Bay Community Foundation and The United Way of Thunder Bay. This grant will allow us to move forward in preparing for safely reopening and welcoming everyone to The Gathering Place.
