 “Community Care St. Catharines & Thorold is extremely pleased to have been identified as the recipient of the Many Hands Project this year.  It further solidifies the strong partnership the agency has with Niagara College,” said Community Care Executive Director Betty-Lou Souter. “We look forward to working with the College on this exciting venture.
