Candy for Kids is an annual event that will help save and improve the lives of sick children and their families across Canada. Together they have raised $10, 669.00 for our local Children’s Hospitals: IWK Health Services in the Maritimes, Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary, the Janeway Foundation in Newfoundland and Operation Enfant Soleil in Montreal.
