The Kinsmen worked to get a $1,600 contribution for the Telkwa daycare from the Kinsmen Foundation of B.C. to match the $1,600 fundraised, for a total of $3,200. Casandra was in a car accident in April of last year, and the lift will help her continue at the Ark where she has been working since June of 2015. (Chris Gareau photo)
