The Power Workers' Union (PWU) has presented several donations to charitable organizations in the Kincardine area over the past couple of weeks.
PWU representative Cathy Luinstra presented a cheque for $3,000 Kincardine District Senior School (KDSS) teacher Tim Luinstra, for the Outdoor Education program, and toward the building of an outdoor classroom so students can move to learning in the outdoors.
This donation will assist students taking the Outdoor Education program, as well as in the purchase of equipment for activities in the program and for assisting with excursions, such as the Saugeen River and Algonquin Canoe Trips.
Students at KDSS who take this course learn various wilderness and camping skills and then get the opportunity to test their skills on a five-day wilderness trip into Algonquin Park in June. The funding also assists students who cannot afford the cost of the program or the trips.
Tim Luinstra and KDSS principal Mark Ozorio thank the PWU, on behalf of the staff and students at KDSS, for these greatly-needed funds.
