PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Help Niagara’s nurses raise funds to build a health clinic in Kenya by dropping in at a community car wash Saturday, July 31 in Welland. This year is International Year of the Nurse, and Niagara Health System (NHS) nurses are holding a number of fundraising events for a building project to provide better healthcare in Africa.

Partnering with international child rights and relief agency Free the Children, NHS nurses are planning to raise $20,000 to send five or six Niagara youth to a Kenyan village to help build the facility.

The car wash on Saturday, July 31, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. takes place at the Canadian Tire store at 158 Primeway Drive in Welland. Organizers are requesting a minimum $5 donation per car wash.

Niagara high school students, aged 13 to 18, wishing to volunteer at the car wash and qualify for the draw to go to Kenya are asked to contact event co-ordinator Cindy Ko at cindy.ko@niagarahealth.on.ca.

Special thanks to Canadian Tire Welland for supporting this event.
