A $5,000 donation by the Ponoka Kinettes has fully supplied the Ponoka Parent Link Centre kitchen with supplies and appliances.
The Kinettes were busy at the centre Tuesday, Dec. 9, helping unpack boxes and getting the major appliances ready to store supplies for the centre, which will see major improvements in its programming such as pancake breakfasts, and cooking and baking classes for young families in the area.
Andrea Ramage, program co-ordinator for the Parent Link Centre says having the kitchen space full and ready for use is a welcome addition. She praised the Kinettes for their support. “I’m actually pretty emotional. It’s really great to see this community support us.”
Kinette Leanne Reed, who was in charge of the project, says the fundraising club is excited to be able to help out as she says more families are using the Parent Link Centre than ever considering it is in a bigger space.
Kitchen supplies, appliances and anything that would stock the kitchen was purchased by the Kinettes. Ramage says she can now start cooking and baking classes.
“Food brings people together and that’s an element that’s always been missing here,” Ramage concluded.
