When local builder Jack Bartlett decided to run for Honorary Mayor of Brandon in 2013, he chose A Kid's Place as his charity. "I chose to run for Honorary Mayor of Brandon to support A Kid's Place because of how strongly my wife, Wendy, and I feel about children. This charity truly makes a difference in the life of a child."
Why I Volunteer - Carolyn Summers - Pantry volunteer for 5 years
"Volunteering is so very rewarding to me - to think I might be helping someone...I guess that's my purpose in life."
My Philosophy - Dottie Berger MacKinnon
"Our kids have had a rough time before they came to us, and chances are they will have a rough time after they leave - maybe for a long time. Somewhere down the road they are going to remember that there was a period in their lives when life was good, when people cared, and there were loving people in this world who made them feel special - because they are. That's A Kid's Place. We all do our little part to make these children feel loved."
What better way to prepare for the new year than with a Back to School Supply Drive?
