The University of Regina Campus Kin Club has been a member of Kin Canada for 7 yesrs and We are often asked why we are involved with such a great organization ....Kin Canada works to Serve the Community's Greatest Need.
We do this service with the BEST group of passionate people: my club members are some of my best friends - we serve with joy, laughter and a touch of mischief, all the while, making a huge impact on our community.
At our annual convention, the impact we make on our communities is celebrated. I thought I'd share that with you.
- we gave $47,000 to the Students of Canada for Hal Rogers
Endowment Fund for scholarships
- we've donated 422 units of blood for Canadian Blood Services
- we've raised $45M for Cystic Fibrosis over the last 53 years
- the average age of a CF patient today is now 52.1 years thanks to funding and support from Kin
-to top it all off the Stampede City Kinsmen and Kinettes was Sergeant at Arms for the National meeting in Halifax on Saturday and though KIN Catch and Release we raised a phenomenal $44 Thousand in one day for The MS Society Atlantic.
Overall, Kin Canada raised $1,186,583 dollars for CF this past year.
Total Service dollars to Citizens of Canada for 2016/2017 was $18,679,622
So when someone mentions Kinsmen, Kinettes or Kin Canada to you, you'll now know what they're talking about.
And we're always looking for members. Ask me how you can be a part of this wonderful organization whether its in Regina, Saskatchewan or Canada.
Thank you Halifax Kin Club for the hard work, time and energy that was put into running a National Convention.
