I love it when we get to share good news!
You have all been so wonderful in donating money and snowsuits to the Clothes For Kids campaign and we are now able to share that we have exceeded our goal.
Over $100,892 was raised during the campaign, which means over 2000 children in need have received new snowsuits.
This was the 28th year for Corus Entertainment Kingston’s Clothes For Kids campaign and we’re so thankful for all the support.
Some of the people who stepped up were Cindy and Peter, a couple who got married in November and asked guests to donate snowsuits in lieu of gifts; local artist Vanessa who donated the proceeds from her artwork; students Dylan and Evan who invited friends to bring snowsuits to their birthday party instead of gifts; and the 7th grade class at La Salle who raised money by selling grilled cheese sandwiches.
Thank you to everyone who donated, thank you to everyone volunteered their time, and a MASSIVE thank you to our Clothes For Kids campaign coordinator Maria Sadowy.
Your generosity and support has made it possible for us to ensure all the kids in Kingston are warm this winter with snowsuits.
