NKUC Accessibility Project 1North Kildonan United has been serving and partnering with the community since 1961. Our members are active in the community, contributing financially and with their time to several organizations. Our facility is also used by many groups. But we want to do more and we can — We are embarking on a major fund-raising campaign for an expansion so that we can be more for our community.

The project involves the installation of a handicap lift, allowing access by everyone to all three levels of the church complex. The total project has a price tag of almost $364,000. The congregation, by the end of December 2015, has raised over $98,000; with further commitments of over $55,000 to be made in the coming years. We need your help. Please read on for full details on the Accessibility Project and how you can help us reach our goal.
