Let Them Be Kids

Let Them Be Kids is an all volunteer, non-profit organization created to build community capacity on the grassroots level, while building playgrounds, skate parks and fitness parks across Canada. These projects leave a legacy of community members who are inspired and better equipped to lay a strong foundation for a brighter tomorrow.

St. John Catholic Elementary School in Perth is a proud recipient of a 2010 Let Them Be Kids "Believe" Award! Every dollar raised by our community will be matched by Let Them Be Kids
to build a much needed playground at St. John's!

This week, we would like to acknowledge the generous donations made by Canadian Tire in Perth and Shadowfax in Perth! Both businesses have helped to bolster our aim of building a new playground for the excited students of St. John's! A big thank you from all of us at St. John's, especially the kids!
