INNISFIL, ON, May 6, 2015 /CNW/ - Canada's leading head lice removal company made a donation from proceeds raised from the sale of its popular Premium Nit Kit™ to the Children's Aid Foundation April 30th at their head office location in Toronto. Proceeds will support Children's Aid Foundation programs that help vulnerable children and youth living in Canada's child welfare system
"We created a national giving back campaign with the Foundation last year because we recognized the importance of using what we do as a vehicle to assist communities through our TLC Project to promote healthy families, children and communities," said Dawn Mucci, President and Founder of Lice Squad Canada. "I've been involved on a local level as a foundation board member for the South Simcoe CAF and in the course of my volunteer work became aware of the immense need to support children and youth in our communities and beyond. By partnering with the CAF, our annual donation will be used to help children across Canada with initiatives such as education and advocacy."
Lice Squad Canada's Premium Nit Kit™, sold on-line, in exclusive retail stores and through Lice Squad Canada's franchise network, contains everything needed to identify and remove head lice without pesticides. Lice Squad products are safe, effective, environmentally friendly, meeting a growing demand for non-toxic alternatives for head lice.
Lice Squad has been the go-to source for head lice removal, and education for over fourteen years offering franchise opportunities, clinic and mobile services in major Canadian communities, as well as a full line of pesticide-free products available nationwide at its LS Clinics, mobile locations and in pharmacies and health food stores.
The Children's Aid Foundation's mission is to improve the lives of Canada's abused, neglected and abandoned children and young adults currently or formerly living in the child welfare system. With the support of generous donors, the Children's Aid Foundation works with child welfare organizations across Canada to provide funding in the areas of prevention, education, enrichment, healing and recovery.
