This update, coming as it does after Christmas, is late. We closed the lot on December 18th after selling all but 13 of our trees. Out profits from this project will be spent in the community to support initiatives that fit the goal of Kinsmen - serving the community's greatest need.
POW City Kinsmen
In June of 2011 the POW City Kinsmen approved a donation of $6000 to Westmount Community School. This donation allowed the Westmount Community School to undertake an ambitious project to replace their old playground facilities. The donation from the POW City Kinsmen, when added to donations from other organizations and companies, as well as the school's own fundraising program reached the goal required in order to move forward. The POW City Kinsmen are also planning to donate time and efforts in the replacement of the old equipment.
