Tears and cheers
Our second annual banquet was filled with tears and celebration. Roughly 90 people gathered for a tasty meal and to hear testimonies from Kinwell students. Taylor, Owen, and Janessa courageously and vulnerably shared their life stories, which gripped the hearts of everyone in the room.
Everyone's favorite segment of the night was when the students came to each table to be interviewed by our guests. This was an opportunity to get to know a student and find out what goes on at Kinwell.
We can't thank our guests enough for their generous support. We raised just over $7,000, with much more pledged to come by the end of the year. This will go a long way toward developing our Job Training Program and provide counseling for our students. It's never too late to donate. We have a giving option on our website or it can be mailed to our building.
Thanks again to our beloved supporters. We are so encouraged to know that the community is supporting us.
