Kin Challenge for Cancer Support

The Kinsmen Club of Stratford stopped on April 20th to give the group a cheque for $1,000 in support of their programs.

 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 is challenging you to
>> bring your returnable Beer, Liquor & Wine bottles or cans
>> to its spring “Drive through Bottle Drive”
>> from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Saturday, May 27th
>> at the Zehrs Parking Lot beside the Gas Bar.
>> Or if you have 5 cases or more just call Kin Hal @ 519-271-1713 for Free Pick Up Service.

Let’s see if we can match the $1,000 donation.

Kin Canada, Only In Canada EH! Canada’s largest all-Canadian service organization is made up of Canadian men and women who gather together in clubs to volunteer their time for the purposes of bettering their communities by performing ‘hands-on’ service work, raising funds for important community projects and having fun.
