Feedback from mentors and families shows that KidStart is making a huge difference in the lives of local children and youth.

One mentor of an eight-year-old boy said, “He’s really opening up. He’s starting conversations that he never did before. He used to be afraid to try new things and now he’s conquering his fears. It’s a really big step.”

Donations can be made online at www.jhsni.bc.ca or in person or by mail to The John Howard Society of North Island, 140 10th Ave, Campbell River, BC, V9W 4E3. Donations over $10 are eligible for a tax receipt. As well, KidStart donation tins will be out at The UPS Store #215 at 1434 Ironwood St. from November 30-December 2.
