Lori Henderson (right), Program Co-ordinator with Strong Start, receives a cheque from Heather Bright, Kiwanis Club of Brantford president, and Judith Jones, chair of the club’s Young Children Priority One committee.

Kiwanis has continued as a legacy donor with the contribution of $5,000.00 to honour Strong Start to reading programs at Banbury Heights Public School and Jean Vanier Catholic School. In addition to their financial contribution, Kiwanis members give the gift of their time working as trained volunteer coaches to deliver the Letters, Sounds and Words program for young learners.
