When Covid-19 shut everything down a few years ago, Kathy noticed that many of the local organizations were struggling to maintain their fundraising efforts and Kathy found a way to fill this need for not just one but multiple local organizations. She began an online, weekly, Facebook bingo. She continues to host this bingo and to date has raised over $15,000 for local groups, organizations and people or families in need. Many of these organizations would not have survived the pandemic without her tremendous efforts. Although she was always involved in fundraisers before Covid, she truly saved some of the organizations in our area with her efforts during and after the pandemic.
Here is what some of the other members of her community have to say about Kathy:
"Kathy is the definition of community. She is always giving and raising money for non-profits and anyone in need. Her relationship with Santa gets our community a great amount of face time with the jolly ole soul every single year. She supports local business by including their products in her donations, always paying out of pocket. She quietly gifts her cross stitch masterpieces to locals and children?s toys to the RCMP, never looking for recognition. Kathy Tower is the kind of person that makes people want to live in a small community. Her recognition by Connecting Albert County is well deserved." Angela Elliott
"Kathy will help anyone at any time! She is always willing to help any person or group that needs it." Greg Rossiter (aka The Grinch)
"She is really funny. She brightens every room she enters and teaches and encourages other people to help as well." Brooklyn Rossiter (aka The Mini Grinch)
She has made a lasting impact on many people with her generous and caring spirit and this month we honor her for the kind, caring and gentle soul that she is. We are so very lucky to know Kathy and to be a part of the community that she lives in and cares so deeply for. Our community is a much better place because she is a part of it.
