WE Care Campaign Underway

President of the WE Care For Kids Board of Directors Liz Arkinstall talks about last year's fund raising, and the organizations goals for 2014 at Windsor Regional Hospital's Met Campus, April 9, 2014.

WE Care For Kids is kicking off its 2014 campaign, hoping to build on great numbers from last year.

President of the organization’s board of directors Liz Arkinstall says $300,000 was raised in the 2013 campaign. “We were able to put about $200,000 toward our pledge at the WE Care For Kids House. We were also able to provide equipment at the John McGivney Centre, (other dontations were made to) the Theraputic Riding Association, as well as Leamington hospital.”

Arkinstall says the WE Care For Kids House is the only mental health facility for kids between the ages of 6 and 13, and it’s close to being paid off.

A $90,000 donation from the Under The Big Top Kids Gala is the first donation to the 2014 campaign.
