It’s Friday December 2nd. Good Morning I’m Karim Mosna with your daily news brief.
The Kingston Community Climate Action Fund have announced three projects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the community. the City of Kingston’s Community Climate Action Fund is seeking to raise $112,308 to support the projects. The projects include the Frontenac Club Day Care Integration Programme to build retrofits to create 20 new licensed daycare spaces in Kingston and a new wheelchair-accessible preschool and infant rooms. The retrofits will improve energy efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Ongwanada is looking to purchase an electric wheelchair transport bike that can be used to help residents maintain their mental and physical health and Sustainable Kingston is looking to purchase an electric vehicle that will replace gas-powered vehicle use.
Donations to the fund are accepted at all Kingston Community Credit Union branches, the KCCU will match donations made through the bank up to $5,000.
This afternoon, more than 11,000 students and staff from 40 schools in Kingston, Frontenac, and Lennox & Addington will take part in the 21st annual Jingle Bell Run.
Students will be donating a non-perishable food in exchange for a jingle bell, and then participating in a one kilometre festive fit break where they will walk, run or skip around their school or community “with bells on”. This is a partnership between KFL&A Public Health, local school boards, and local food banks to help gather food donations for families in need. The run will start at 2:30 at both Bayridge Public School and Southview Public School.
