Kinette Club Goes The Distance for Lac La Biche Big Brothers Big Sisters

Aug 1, 2018

Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) of Lac La Biche is part of the service delivery area for Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters of Edmonton & Area (BGCBigs). They provide positive mentoring relationships for children and youth in the community. BBBS Lac La Biche relies on the generosity of the community’s time and resources to ensure that kids who could benefit from an additional caring adult in their life have access to one. One of the great supporters of this program is the Kinette Club of Lac La Biche.

“The Kinette Club of Lac La Biche is a non profit organization dedicated to serving the communities greatest needs. It is a group of approximately 30 women affiliated under Kin Canada that provides community events, volunteer time, and donation requests all within Lac La Biche and surrounding areas. The Kinette Club of Lac La Biche loves to help and partner with organizations such as Big Brother Big Sisters as they are an organization that also seeks to serve the communities greatest need with a focus on children. Each year one of our favourite things to do is participate in the Bowl for Kids Sake, it gives us a chance to give back as well as have some fun! This year the Kinette Club of Lac La Biche also provided the meal at the event along with their team donations. The Kinette Club of Lac La Biche also partnered with Big Brothers Big Sisters at the Pow Wow Parade in July. This was a fun event for all involved.  “We always have a blast partnering with our local Big Brothers Big Sister’s agency and seeing the kids smiling and enjoying themselves is all the thank you we need!” – Lauren Kamke, Kinette Member and District 4 Zone C Kinette Deputy Governor

Thank you, Kinette Club of Lac La Biche, for your continued involvement and support. Having active members in the community, like you, really helps make a difference for so many kiddos!
