KLFS has posted their organizations profile on the Great Canadian Giving Challenge website, and is looking to draw support from both the local community and individuals across Canada. KLFS has placed their fundraising goal at $11,000.
By reaching this goal, Kawartha Lakes Food Source can continue to purchase fresh milk and fruit as part of the nutritious selection of food provided through their Grab N’ Grow School Breakfast Program. This program is offered in twenty elementary and secondary schools throughout the City of Kawartha Lakes and supports more then 400,000 breakfast meals and snacks each school year.
Kawartha Lakes Food Source is a local, non-profit, and non-governmental organization located in Lindsay, Ontario. It aims to reduce hunger within the City of Kawartha Lakes by serving more than 2,000 individuals in need.
To help Canada celebrate its 150th birthday, CanadaHelps.org is launching the Great Canadian Giving Challenge. This campaign provides registered charities across Canada an online platform to present their cause to a Canada wide audience. Canadians can search and explore the hundreds of passionate and hardworking charities within Canada, and donate online towards a charity’s fundraising goal.
Donations must be made via givingchallenge.ca or canadahelps.org and by searching Kawartha Lakes Food Source, and a minimum $3 donation required. Thank you for future donation, and remember to “like” and “share” KLFS Great Canadian Giving Challenge Facebook posts, to spread the word!
