It’s a record.
CKNW’s 36th annual Orphans Fund pledge drive brought home over 1.9 million dollars.
More cash for the charity than ever before.
The fund’s executive director Jen Schaeffers explains where that money will go.
“Well this money will go directly to children with special needs. So whether that be individual grants for children that come from a low income household that need something extra for their development. That could be social, behavioral, physical, mental. We also do large grants to other organizations, non-profits, charities, focused on children.”
This year’s haul eclipses the previous record by $200 thousand.
Thanks to all who donated.
