Kinsmen Club of Peterborough donates $5000 to the New Canadians Centre


The PC Cooking School and the New Canadians Centre hosted a night of fun Thursday with newly arrived Syrian refugees cooking and sharing traditional Syrian dishes at the school located in the Real Canadian Superstore.

Cooking School co-ordinator Elaine McCarth welcomed two families from Syria into the kitchen as they prepared a traditional Syrian flatbreads Zaatar Manakeesh. Approximately 30 people were in attendance to enjoy the food.

Also during the evening the Kinsmen Club of Peterborough presented a cheque to the New Canadians Centre for $5,000. The donation is a result of the Kinsmen’s Club’s firework sales which take place from the May 24 weekend to Labour Day.

Club president Justin Ledoux  said the club decided in early April to donate the funds to the New Canadians Centre Peterborough Welcome Fund in an effort to help as many Syrian families as possible. ‘Our mission is to serve the community’s greatest needs,’ says Ledoux. ‘It’s so important our Club continues to evolve and serve the changing needs of our community and helping these newcomer families was an opportunity to do so.’

Barry Craft of the Kinsmen Club and New Canadians Centre executive director Hajni Hos took part in the cheque presentation.
