Kylemore Communities donates gifts to youth shelter


Just in time for the holidays, the Kylemore Team shopped for much needed Wish List items and delivered them to 360°kids. The donation included toiletries, slippers, a larm clocks, gift cards, pajamas and articles of clothing donated by Angus Glen Golf Club’s Nike Pro Shop.

Since 1988, 360°kids has provided a full complement of programs and services aimed at assisting at-risk and homeless youth with a focus on York Region. Taking a complete 360-degree approach to care, the charity provides a range of programs and services that are essential to the health and well-being of kids, including counselling, outreach services, housing support, positive mentorship and employment opportunities.

“The Kylemore Communities and Angus Glen Golf Club donations will certainly put a smile on the faces of the youth who are receiving ser-vices at 360°kids,” said Dan Zaroski, resource development associate at 360°kids. “The holiday season is a difficult one for youth who live in the shelter system; when caring and thoughtful businesses like these donate such wonderful gifts, all are reminded of the true meaning of the season! Thank you!”

Throughout each year, Kylemore continues its tradition of giving back to the community by donating funds raised from its annual Kylemore Kares Charity Golf Tournament, which the company matches.
