Supporting

Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society Kelowna & District SHARE Society

 

Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society​’s Role:
KFS will take a primary role in the clothing drive. They are responsible for sorting, counting, and distributing the donated articles of clothing. They will also help coordinate volunteers for picking up the clothing from the designated drop-off locations.

ABOUT KFS
The Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society is a registered charity that was established in 1974. The Ki-Low-Na Friendship Society will provide for the mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well-being of all peoples through the development of community-based services, while encouraging the community to preserve, share and promote Aboriginal cultural distinctiveness.

SHARE’s Role:
SHARE is responsible for storing the clothing and taking in any excess clothing that KFS Outreach can’t distribute to the community. They have also generously donated storage bin, various articles of clothing, blankets, and sleeping bags to help support the cause.

ABOUT SHARE
SHARE is a nonprofit organization that is 100% dedicated to giving back to this wonderful city. Unlike many other thrift stores, the vast majority of the profits from the items sold in our store directly fund our in-house charitable programs. These carefully crafted SHARE initiatives predominantly aim to provide valuable and transferable employment skills to those who need it most or focus on providing aid at specific times of need to families in our community. They are also huge supporters of external programs that directly help Kelowna's citizens by committing to mutually-rewarding, long-term partnerships with over 26 other social agencies and programs in the area.
