Club spokeswoman Constance Nobes details, “Since the Press Release on the TKBGC Safe Walk Program requiring funding to carry on, there have been a few people who have stepped up to the plate to try to keep the program operational. Pam McConnell’s office has been working diligently on saving this program and she has brought partners to the ‘table’ that are very interested in supporting the continuation of it. There have been no guarantees as yet. What is really needed is money.”
It was business as usual for the club on Sept. 9, through rain and cold, when Club staff and volunteers hosted their open house and barbecue.
Games and face painting for the children in the morning, barbecue in the afternoon and the open house all day brought many neighbors in to find out more about the Club and what programs are offered for children/youth aged 6 – 18. Musicians were scheduled all afternoon thanks to Michael Stephenson at the TARA, the Audio Recording Academy. The finale was an amazing presentation by Michael McLarty and the Jembe Drummers.
The Toronto Kiwanis Boys & Girls Clubs, 101 Spruce Street has volunteer opportunities in the after school program. Monday to Friday 3:30 – 7 p.m.
If you would like to find out more about volunteering at either the Gerrard K Club, 101 Spruce St. or the T.P. Loblaw K Club please contact the volunteer coordinator at 416-925-2243 ex.25.
