Endless Volunteer Opportunities
Kin Canada clubs offer opportunities for people of all ages, with different interests and time availability to volunteer. By volunteering with your local Kin Canada club at events and service projects, you will support the efforts of Kin members who are working together to better your community. You will enjoy volunteering with a diverse and spirited group and can create life-long friendships while having fun and working with others.
Through a variety of service projects organized by our clubs, Kin Canada has helped thousands, if not millions, of people in need. Kin members can proudly say they have contributed more than $1 billion to Canadian communities, including more than $40 million for cystic fibrosis research and treatment. They have also raised hundreds of millions of dollars for parks, playgrounds and community facilities, as well for individuals and families in need.
Giving Back to Your Community is Easy
Since 1920, Kinsmen, Kinette and Kin clubs have offered community-minded people — like you — the opportunity to make their town or city a better place to live.
Kinsmen, Kinettes and Kin clubs play a vital role in Canadian society by raising funds for worthy causes, undertaking community projects and providing leadership, training and networking opportunities for our members.
Thousands of Manitobans are doing their utmost to collect as many tickets as possible ahead of the Kinsmen Jackpot Bingo on Saturday — but some are going to extreme lengths to do so, the service organization says.
It is the highest jackpot ever for the weekly televised bingo game, at more than $640,000.
'Never in my almost three decades of hosting this show have I ever seen a city and an entire province go this bingo crazy,' host Kathy Kennedy told the CBC's Carol Off on As It Happens Wednesday.
Part of the problem is that the club can't print more tickets very easily, she said. They are printed in the U.S. and shipped to Manitoba.
The Kinsmen Club of Winnipeg, which runs the event, said in a social media post Tuesday that some especially bingo-crazed people were seen chasing the group's courier to get their hands on the scarce bingo cards.
'We have hordes of people driving dangerously FOLLOWING our courier driver like paparazzi and putting him in danger.… We will continue deliveries secretly at a later time,' it said.
The Kinsmen Club donates profits of the bingo game to various charities and organizations in Winnipeg and Manitoba.
The weekly game — which airs every Saturday — is selling a record number of cards due to the massive jackpot.
On average, the club sells between 6,000 and 8,000 cards per week, but now it's up to about 50,000.
Deb Mukherjee, owner of Bergie's convenience store in Beausejour, said his customers are calling after hours to see if he has any tickets.
'We are in bed and then you get a phone call at 3 and 4 and 5 and you wake up quickly. This kind of problem, you know, you get kind of stressed out,' he said.
Those who come in person want more tickets than he can provide.
'People came, 'Oh, I want 10 tickets, why aren't you selling me 10, 20, 30?' I said, 'Well, we do not have. We only got 100 tickets, that's all. We do not have much tickets.' That was a big problem,' Mukherjee said.
