International Women’s Day- March 8February 25, 2016
Thanks to the generosity of Okanagan Kids Care, children who use the services of Kelowna Women’s Shelter will have access to new bicycles, mattresses and playpens.
“Bikes represent fun, freedom, and fresh air, so much of what’s good about being a child,” points out executive director Karen Mason. “Cycling is also a healthy outdoor activity that children can participate in their whole lives. After a busy day that includes cycling, a child needs a good night’s sleep, and a good mattress is a great way to ensure the kids in our care get the rest they need and awake feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.”
Okanagan Kids Care donated $6,594 to the Kelowna Women’s Shelter in February.
“The Okanagan Kids Care Fund Society is pleased to provide funding to the Kelowna Women’s Shelter. The items purchased with these funds will enhance the quality of life of the children accessing the services of the Kelowna Women’s Shelter,” says Susan Patterson, Kids Care board member.
The Kelowna Women’s Shelter is in its 35th year serving the community. The Shelter provides emergency transitional housing, counselling and other support and education programs for women and their children who have experienced abuse.
Thank you again, Okanagan Kids Care- we’re lucky to have your support!
