Bay Seniors is a partner of the The Bay Treasure Chest (BTC) – a weekly 50/50 draw that gives players an opportunity to win cash, while supporting local community service organizations.
Eight local St. Margaret’s Bay non-profit partner groups organize the weekly BTC 50/50 draw. The draw awards exciting prize money to the winning player and substantial funding for projects and services delivered by Treasure Chest partners.
Volunteers from BTC’s partner groups, including Bay Seniors, spend many hours on the weekly draws and from their share of Treasure Chest proceeds deliver programs, services, recreation and other activities for the benefit of individuals, families, the environment and our community.
A major portion of Bay Treasure Chest funds earned by the Seniors Association is reserved for the development of affordable rental housing in the Bay. The Seniors Association funded the formation of the “SMB Housing Coalition” as a registered NS non-profit society to pursue the goal of affordable rental housing in the Bay.
In 2018 the Seniors Association used BTC and other funds to provide:
Unit 1 – 5229 St. Margaret’s Bay Road
