Foun­da­tion, Sar­nia-Lambton “The Kid­ney Chap­ter is a great place to vol­un­teer. All the peo­ple I have met over the years have been friendly and wel­com­ing. A re­ally great as­pect of the Kid­ney Foun­da­tion is to hear and see the di­rect im­pact our pro­grams have on fam­i­lies in the com­mu­nity liv­ing with kid­ney dis­ease.” Krista Ser­ra­tore
