Jack Kidd was a well-known community volunteer and businessman in Saint John. He was involved in, and volunteered with, a number of organizations in the community, but Jack was especially focused on providing support to young people. Jack’s belief in the importance in getting involved in the community was something that he shared with his wife Lois, and their daughter Cindy.
Upon Jack’s passing, the late Cindy Kidd established The Jack Kidd Family – Saint John Boys and Girls Club Fund in his name, and in honour of her parents and family. The Club serves many children and youth in the community, with a wide variety of programs. The Fund, entrusted to The Community Foundation, was established to support the Saint John Boys and Girls Club with ongoing operational expenses.
