Piero Presutti from the Oxford Thrift Shoppe presented Kemptville Youth Centre Board members, Cyndy Batchelor and Jennifer Franssen, with a $650 donation during the KYC Book Fair last weekend. This is their second donation of 2018, bringing their total to just under $1000 donated for the year.
Debbie and Piero wanted to give back to the community and decided that a portion of all the sales at the Thrift Shoppe would go to the Kemptville Youth Centre. “I really believe kids need a place like that to go to instead of hanging around on the street,” Debbie says.
Piero says it was also im- portant to them to find a lo- cal charity where they knew exactly where all the money was going. “The best thing about a local charity like KYC is that we know that 100% of the funds will go directly to the kids.”
