To wrap-up the 10-week OPP KIDS Program, Grade 6 students at Keppel-Sarawak Elementary School, in the Township of Georgian Bluffs, organized and hosted a breakfast fundraising event for staff, parents and the OPP, as part of their graduating
ceremony held on March 23, 2017.

The students, who chose to "pay it forward", raised a total of $563.00 which was donated to the Residential Hospice of Grey Bruce (Chapman House).

Several officers from the Grey County OPP Detachment attended the event in support of the students.The OPP KIDS program was developed as an interactive tool for officers to talk to young people about the decisions they may need to make and what supports are available to them when dealing with today's issues relating to online and social media, drugs and alcohol, and peer relationships. 

KIDS stands for Knowledge, Issues, Decision and Supports.
