Donation helps cover kids’ sports seasons

Mid Island Co-op presents cheque to KidSport Nanaimo

Donations to KidSport Nanaimo enable more children to get in the game.

Mid Island Co-op recently presented $3,000 to the organization; according to the KidSport website, “this donation will ensure that 10 children in the Nanaimo area will have the opportunity to experience a season of sport.”

KidSport is always looking for more partners to help get kids off the sideline and into the game. Money donated locally stays in the community.
