The Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation of Chatham-Kent recently disbursed funds raised from this past spring’s Festival of Giving.
The April event brought in more than $275,000 for the treatment centre and several local charities.
Every year, the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation allocates a portion of the Festival of Giving proceeds to local Food Banks and Children’s Charities. This year, the Children’s Treatment Centre Foundation, through the Festival of Giving, donated $80,000 back into the Chatham-Kent community.
The recipient charities include Big Brothers Big Sisters of Chatham-Kent, Habitat for Humanity Chatham-Kent, Outreach for Hunger, the Salvation Army, Sertoma, the United Way of Chatham-Kent, and several other faith-based food banks across the municipality.
