April 6th to the 11th marks Volunteer Appreciation Week 2014. Volunteers are very important to every community, and many events, organizations and other important community functions could not go ahead without them.
KES Foundation has almost 6000 registered volunteers that attend our KES Clubs everyday – they help purchase food, prepare meals, organize Clubs and serve more than 22,000 meals to school aged children throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. KES Clubs would not be possible without the tremendous dedication and support of all of our wonderful volunteers……you are all truly the best!!
On behalf of all of our children and The Kids Eat Smart Foundation board and staff we want to say “Thank You!”
If you or anyone you know would like to volunteer with a KES Club in your community please contact your local school or community center that has a KES Club. It’s a very rewarding experience and you will make a difference every day!
