We offer CLM all the best.”

Mr. Kenney welcomed the donations, saying, “On behalf of CLM I am very grateful for these contributions as we are in need of a wheelchair accessible vehicle. These donations will definitely help quite a bit for the individual and will enhance lives. And future fundraisers and donations will help to allow us to purchase a new vehicle in the near future.
