Farrow supports Kids Help Phone for the 24th consecutive year
Farrow has supported the annual Kids Help Phone Golf Classic presented by Nestle Canada, since 1997. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions, Farrow has shown support by making a donation to Kids Help Phone, in lieu of the annual Kids Help Phone Golf Classic. Farrow is happy to be supporting such an incredible organization, for the 24th consecutive year.
“Farrow will be continuing our yearly support for such a wonderful organization. It’s our pleasure to carry on our tradition of partnering with Nestle to do this,” said Rick Farrow, Chairman of Farrow.
During 2020, Kids Help Phone connected with youth over 4.6 million times (compared to 1.9 million in 2019) and are expecting to surpass that number in 2021! As young people, from coast to coast, are in urgent need of help, they are turning to Kids Help Phone more than ever.
