MIRARCO’s Charity of Choice for 2009 is Project Kandwar

Sudbury, ON, February 12, 2009 — Project Kandwar (PK) is pleased to announce that it has been chosen by MIRARCO’s staff as the company’s charity of choice for 2009. Project Kandwar is a Sudbury-based charity organization dedicated to bettering living conditions of impoverished villagers in India.

Narasim Katary, the founder of PK said, “The choice by MIRARCO shows that despite economic hardship in Canada, people at the institution are desirous of giving a hand up to people who are less fortunate, even though they are half a world away. It is also Sudbury at its best where decency trumps indifference.”

MIRARCO will be holding several fundraisers throughout the year and will donate all proceeds to Project Kandwar. Last year’s Charity of Choice—The Salvation Army—received a total of $3,800 from the year’s fundraising events such as silent auctions, prize draws, and a fund-raising drive held at the company’s 10th Anniversary Gala.
