The work of registered charities and not-for-profits in the Kenora and Lake of the Woods Region could not happen at the level it does without the support of the Community Foundation and the funders who so generously give. These are real people with real stories, sharing the difference the grants have made in their lives and the opportunities they might not otherwise have had. - Judy Underwood, in response to the June 2016 Granting Ceremony

The Kenora Public Library is the grateful recipient of a $2000 grant from the Laidlaw Foundation, located in Toronto, Ontario. This donation was in support of the local “Tell Me A Story” intergenerational storytelling program held at Pinecrest Home for the Aged. Youth and elder learning is a large part of the Laidlaw Foundation’s mission – to promote positive youth development through inclusive youth engagement in the arts, environment and in community.

The program has been running since 2016 and has received plenty of positive feedback. Youth come to participate in a story time and do crafts together.

This generous donation will help expand the program.
