The community is giving back.

Kenora’s branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association has received a donation of $1,141 to help support the branch. The donation was made through the sales of soap from the Lake of the Woods Sunrise Soap Company.

Lorna Smith from The Medicine Shoppe Pharmacy purchases the soap from Rita Boutette and the Lake of the Woods Sunrise Soap Company, and sells the soap at regular price to donate the money to the CMHA.

Sara Dias, Executive Director of CMHA Kenora, spoke about how the donation will help the CMHA.

“We’re really grateful for the donation. It’s all going to go back into programming, specifically around outreach for prevention work to be able to provide education programs in the community and our school systems. There’s an increased need for us to provide education in school systems in the area. The particular program costs $25 per student, and we’re going to use the donation to offset some of the costs for the schools,” she said.

The CMHA will be rolling out the “Living Life to the Full” program to area schools shortly.
