KIds Helping Kids in Trail

There's a group in the Trail area, who are raising awareness and funds in the community to help local schools with their breakfast and healthy snack programs.

One of the Organizers of Kids Helping Kids, Courtenay Jones, works for Kootenay Savings.

She says they were looking for a good cause to donate too, and there's a real need in local schools, with the need growing every year.

Jones says kids do everything from bake sales to work at the Mistletoe Market, some kids even donate their birthday money.

She says it helps teach kids empathy.

They've also had a lot of donations from local businesses and organizations.

Last week they were able to donate 5-thousand dollars to 5 different schools.
