The grant is part of the OTF’s Resilient Communities Fund which helps organizations adapt and recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The club will use the grant to purchase more sanitation supplies, new equipment to allow COVID-safe programming, develop more diverse funding streams and support the expansion of programs to meet the needs of its growing, diverse co-ed membership.
“Sport plays a positive role in our physical and mental health,” said Pat Daniels, the club’s president. “This targeted funding will help us further develop our comprehensive range of programming for persons of all ages and abilities and make a positive difference in the lives of individuals and families.”
The club, founded in 1968 and located on Ninth Line, has more than 650 playing members.
“The club is recognized across Canada and has hosted professional and international teams right here in Oakville,” said MPP Stephen Crawford. “Sport is important to our physical and mental well-being, and the Crusaders continue to play a fundamental role in our community now, and following this pandemic.”
