Kin's Farm Market presented a cheque of $3,567 to the Canadian Cancer Society last Thursday (Feb. 16) from funds raised during their second annual calendar campaign.
"Kin's annual calendar campaign is one of the ways we engage our staff and customers in supporting the Canadian Cancer Society," says Kenneth Lai, vice president of corporate development at Kin's Farm Market, a Richmond-based company.
Through community events and seasonal campaigns, the company has become a regular supporter of the society, raising more than $40,000 since 2009.
"We are incredibly grateful for Kin's commitment and dedication to the Canadian Cancer Society," said Jocelyn Kwok of the society.
