This week, from December 12th to the 18th, is Children’s Christmas Fund Week. The objective of the 2022 Children’s Christmas Fund is to raise $55,000.00 to help 1,450 families enjoy Christmas.
Peter Morgan, who has been involved with the Fund since he became a Kinsmen in 1976, told Seaway News that he can’t remember any other year that they got more requests than they budgeted for or planned on.
“We send out letters every year to last year’s donors asking them to help us out again this year. We budget for a number of families but this year we’ve exceeded our target, so we had to buy more food,” Morgan explained, “We want people to know that there is a greater need than ever so that we can fill it.”
Donations can be made at Scotiabank on Brookdale Avenue in Cornwall. People can also donate online through canadahelps.org.
