The Petawawa Military Resource Centre (PMFRC) received $5,000 in funding from the Renfrew County United Way. The money will be put towards the organization’s pre- and post-natal programs. These programs help military spouses find a good support network as well as learn tips to keep their family healthy. This is particularly important with families and military members new to the area who may need the extra support. The programs have grown exponentially since their inception and the United Way’s funding will help considerably.
