Brockville – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) Champions for Kids Foundation (C4K) received more great news today, with a donation of $1,000 from the Uppity Improv Society.
C4K executive members Director of Education Stephen Sliwa, Secretary Lisa Workman, Member at Large Diana Kingston and Director of Communications Cindy Peters, were joined by a cast of characters from the comedy group for the cheque presentation. Laura Oliver, who is the Director of Marketing and Community Outreach for the C4K Foundation, was also
on hand as a member of the improv team.
The funds will be used to support UCDSB families in allowing their children to participate in sports, arts and other fun activities outside of school hours, as well as unique needs like covering minor medical expenses (i.e. eyeglasses), providing gas cards to parents with a child in the hospital, or purchasing a winter coat for a child who needs warmth.
David Morrison, C4K president “We are thrilled to receive a donation from this fantastic group. The Oliver family are dedicated supporters of the Foundation, and we are grateful for the generosity and thoughtfulness of them and their team in providing this donation today.”
The community theatre group was founded in February of 2014, and has raised funds for numerous charitable organizations in the area since then.
