Kaatza Child Care Society keeps its head above water

Budgetary constraints have the Kaatza Child Care Society fund-raising, as always.

Budgetary constraints have the Kaatza Child Care Society fund-raising, as always.

“We’re doing alright, but we have to continue to fund-raise to keep our head above water,” Kaatza Child Care head supervisor Wendy Fetchko said.

This fund-raising is necessary to keep child care fees as low as possible, she added.

During the society’s annual general meeting, earlier this month, new board member Johana Colgan was welcomed. Jennifer Pelton remains chair of the society.

Fund-raisers in the near future will involve a fashion show and a silent auction.

Volunteers will also be setting up shop at the Country Grocer, Saturday, May 14, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. as part of their ongoing effort to sell raffle tickets for a cruise.

If volunteers are able to sell all available tickets, the society will raise $4,000.

The society is also collecting till tapes from Country Grocer, as the grocery store is donating a percentage of sales.

Till tapes can be dropped off at Lake Cowichan’s Curves Fitness Centre.
