About our Club.
Founded in 1955 as the Kinsmen Club of Oakville Incorporated, we are no longer gender specific. As of July 2011 we have been authorized by Kin Canada to operate as the Kin Club of Oakville.
Some of the popular community activities we support are:The Terry Fox Run and the Oakville. For many decades our club has supported the annual Santa Claus Parade and Salvation Army Food Drive and the Jingle Bell Fund. You will see our members pushing shopping carts and carrying donation buckets at the front and back of the parade. Profits from our fundraising events are distributed to organizations and charities that have a presence in the Region of Halton.
Please note, we do NOT donate to individuals although we support organizations that do.
