The House of Kin is getting a makeover thanks to a donation of $100,000 from Near North Customs Brokers and Manitoulin Transport. 

In a news release, Karly Bortolotti, fundraising and marketing coordinator for the House of Kin, said the funds have long been needed, but hard to come by.

“This is something we have been dreaming of doing for a long time, but it has been out of financial reach for us being a non-profit organization,” Bortolotti said in the release.

“This donation is going to let us completely renovate the lobby, which hasn’t been updated in almost 20 years. We plan to make sure everything is completely accessible and barrier-free for our guests when they arrive and check in to the House of Kin. 

“Thank you to Jeff Smith of the Manitoulin Group of Companies for helping our dreams become a reality.”
