Kinsmen Club of Stratford Challenge for Cancer Support Hits Goal

Kin Challenge for Cancer Support Hits Goal

The Kinsmen Club of Stratford back in April stopped in at Wellspring and gave them a cheque for $1,000 in support of their programs. In a media release at the time, the Kinsmen Club put out a challenge to the community. Let’s see if we can match the $1,000 donation by bringing returnable Beer, Liquor & Wine bottles or cans to its spring “Drive through Bottle Drive” held Saturday, May 27th, at the Zehrs Parking Lot beside the Gas Bar. 

Congratulations, Stratford, you did it. Pictured (L to R) are Kin President Trevor Exner handing over a cheque for $1,000 to Lisa Stacey, Wellspring Manager. Located at 55 Lorne St, Wellspring offers programs and services ranging from Educational, Emotional Wellness, Chronic and Oasis to family programs at no charge for those experiencing cancers, caregivers and loved ones. These programs and services offered by Wellspring are funded solely through the generosity of individuals, foundations and organizations in the community. With that in mind, the Kinsmen Club of Stratford
