NEWS RELEASE
COLLINGWOOD AND DISTRICT KINSMEN CLUB
*************************

The Collingwood and District Kinsmen Club has had a successful first year. We have given to our community from roadside cleanups, putting a float in the Santa Clause parade to donating gift cards to the Out of the Cold Collingwood program and supporting their cause to help out those in need during the cold winter months through our bottle drive fundraising event along with other community projects such as a food drive to support the local food bank.

We are currently a small group of 10 guys and, in our first year, we were able to put in over 200 hours of community service from October to when the pandemic put a halt on the nation with a lockdown. We had other ideas in mind that certainly would have contributed more to this number and to the community but unfortunately, the pandemic had other plans in mind.

We continue to come together in camaraderie with hopes to do more as we head into our second year through these turbulent times and offer what we can where social distancing rules apply.

The Kin association stretches from coast to coast and strongly supports each club with all it needs to succeed with projects and events that are planned within each community. We are a close-knit all-Canadian family of Kin.

Our group of guys are always looking to grow our club with more members who are interested to give back to the Collingwood community.

If you have interest, or know of someone who does, have a look at our Facebook page at The Collingwood & District Kinsmen Club or contact us directly at cdkinsmenc@yahoo.com about membership.

We are looking forward to meeting you and hearing how you would like to serve your community’s greatest needs.
