Southern Frontenac Community Services’ 2014 Enhancement Campaign closed last Friday, having gone almost $8,000 above their original goal of $50,000. This was the agency’s first fundraising campaign in their 25-year history. It will help reduce the current waiting list for seniors services programs and provide food and financial security assistance to more low income households in the South Frontenac and rural Kingston areas. This spectacular success was due in part to a $25,000 grant from the William J. Henderson Foundation. This foundation was established by the late Judge Henderson, a politician, war veteran and philanthropist, “to support worthy causes.” Other cash donors included Susan Creasy Financial, Cunningham Swan Carty & Bonham, South Frontenac Township, Branch 496 Royal Canadian Legion, Sydenham Lions Club, Trousdale stores, several local groups and a long list of individuals.
