Kinsmen Kingston Supports WHEW for Two Years! Kinsmen Dream Home Lottery Grant

We are thrilled to announce the support of our Work Hard Eat Well program from Kinsmen Club of Kingston in the amount of $130,840. This will provide the popular program in Kingston's north end to provide programming at no cost for TWO YEARS!

This program is offered at no charge to kids between the ages of nine and 13 at the Rideau Heights Community Centre in Kingston. During the school year, it is offered two hours per week. During the first hour, children will participate in various physical activities designed for exercise and fun; in the second hour, they will have a delicious and nutritious meal. During the summer, WHEW operates as a summer day camp.

Our sincere thanks to Kinsmen for this substantial contribution to our communities!
