Rosemary McCain-McMillin has made a generous donation to the Fredericton Community Foundation, resulting in the establishment of “Rosemary’s Pantry”, a field of interest fund that will provide grants to feed hungry school children.
Through these grants, organizations in our community will have funding to develop creative and impactful solutions to the dilemma of student hunger.
