Give a Little, Help a Lot with KidSport

Jul 20, 2016 | Uncategorized

OFSAA and ‘KidSport’ will partner once again in the coming school year to help high school students in Ontario overcome financial barriers that are restricting their participation in school sports. 

Applications will be available soon through the OFSAA website for the 2016-17 school year, but in the meantime you can do your part to fund these deserving student-athletes by taking part in the KidSport program Give a Little, Help a Lot.

 

From July 15th to 28th, 2016, Ontario customers of Real Canadian Superstore® and Extra Foods® have the opportunity to get local under-serviced children off the sidelines and playing sport through the Give a Little, Help a Lot campaign and KidSport.

 

 

The annual in-store fundraising campaign is supporting KidSport in both major supermarket chains across Canada.  Over the two weeks, cashiers will be asking customers to donate $2 when they pay…So ALL Kids Can Play!  Every dollar donated at checkout will go back to local children facing financial barriers to their participation in organized sport, by way of a KidSport grant.
