Springing into action

The Kent Street Seniors Society has begun a fundraising initiative that needs your help.

Members are asking that you take your recyclables, such as pop cans, beer, wine and water bottles, to Choices Markets at 3248 King George Blvd. in the Alder Crossing mall. All funds generated from your donation of recyclables will be given to KSSS and contribute to the necessary Kent Street kitchen renovations.
