FREDERICTON - A national anti-bullying organization will be able to keep its doors open awhile longer.

Rob Frenette, the co-executive director of Bullying Canada in Fredericton, said in October the group would have to close its doors by the end of November without more financial support.

Frenette says the organization has received a $10,000 donation from an Alberta company and a few hundred dollars in other donations from around the Maritimes.

However, he says this won't be enough to provide long-term sustainability.

Frenette estimates he and his co-executive director will probably have to go back to being volunteers within two or three months.

They began collecting minimum-wage salaries a few months ago.
