Fenelon Falls “Coats for Kids” campaign a big success


KAWARTHA LAKES-Almost 100 local kids will be kept warm this winter thanks to the fundraising efforts of staff at the Bank of Montreal in Fenelon Falls.

Staff have been selling used books at the branch and accepting donations again this Christmas season, to purchase snowsuits & boots, for their “Coats for Kids” campaign.

“We have exceeded our previous year’s numbers with 90 plus snowsuits, jackets, & snowpants, & 34 pairs of boots!” Sandy Kerr said.

Clients also knit mitts & hats, and donated some toys. The Salvation Army Church distributes them locally.

“Thank you to everyone in our community for their generosity again this year!  Our community is the Best!!!” Kerr says.
