P.R.O. Kids partners with community organizations to help make recreational activities accessible to Thunder Bay children and youth in need. However, the number of people wanting to participate far outnumbers the available donated spaces. To accommodate as many people as possible, P.R.O. Kids relies on the generous support of many organizations and individuals. To meet the needs of P.R.O. Kids effectively, we must raise a minimum of $75,000 annually. With your help we can positively impact the life of a child or youth in our community.
Registered Charitable Organization Number 82358-7076-RR0001.
A commitment of $250 per year, pledged for three years, provides as many as five children with the registration fees to participate in the activity of their choice.
