Making a donation to the AFKA through Shaw Birdies for Kids will have a HUGE IMPACT. Not only will your donation be matched by up to 50%, your donation is going to help give the many kids who attend our summer camps, the best summer camp yet!

Due to Covid-19, we have missed out on our 2020 summer camps, so we want to make sure that our camp comeback in 2021 is better than ever! We want to invest in some fun activity equipment for the kids that wouldn’t otherwise be possible without the help of Shaw Birdies for Kids. Some examples of items we are hoping to obtain through fundraising are: commercial grade inflatable water slide, bouncy castle and sporting equipment.
