Take Pride Winnipeg is hoping to make Winnipeggers feel safer as local community centres begin reopening after a long period of limited or no activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The local cleanup organization said Thursday it’s partnering with Clorox to make additional disinfectant products available at community centres across the city.

“Community centres are an integral part of our Winnipeg community,” said Take Pride director Tom Ethans.

“Take Pride is pleased to partner with The Clorox Company on this initiative to support community centres in their efforts to reopen safely.”

“Safely reopening community hubs like community centres after a year and a half of uncertainty is a step towards normalcy and raising Winnipeggers’ spirits.”
