The McCain Foundation makes $50,000 donation to the Greater Saint John Field House Project.
The Greater Saint John Field House Project is proud to announce the support of The McCain Foundation, a private foundation funded by McCain Foods Limited, which has contributed $50,000 to the field house capital campaign.
The field house project will feature two turf pitches for field sports, a running track, a community centre and daycare, and multi-purpose space for the community to use. It requires that half of the $24 Million required, be generated from the community and City funding with provincial funding, and federal funding making up the other half. The donation from The McCain Foundation further increases that community commitment which is now approaching $10.7 million.
“The McCain Foundation is dedicated to helping projects in Atlantic Canada that bring about positive change for health and welfare in our communities.’’ said Linda McCain, Chair of The McCain Foundation. ‘‘This project will significantly enhance the recreation opportunities in greater Saint John and play an important role in providing better wellness options for people from all over southern New Brunswick.’’
“This latest donation demonstrates that New Brunswick businesses big and small will support the development of this field house facility,” says Bill MacMackin, Project Leader. Campaign volunteer, Dr. Andrea Garland also noted, “McCain Foods is one of NB’s most recognized companies and we are very thankful for their support of this project through such a generous contribution. We are very proud to add them to our donor list.”
