On December 1 the Campbellford Community Resource Centre was packed with people of all ages who donated a toy and/or non perishable food item for our Christmas Wish Toy & Food Drive Kick Off. Everyone enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate and cookies with Santa after they placed their donation in his sleigh. As you can see from the picture of the sleigh we had a huge turn out. Thanks to Kent Public School, Hillcrest Public School, the Campbellford District High School and everyone else who attended, for your participation and donations. Just looking at the pictures of Santa’s sleigh shows we live in a community with a big heart and we are willing to help those in need for this Christmas Season.
All the Sponsor’s for The Christmas Wish Toy & Food Drive appreciate everyone who supports this activity. All the donations will stay in our community and help those in need for our area.
For those of you who could not attend our kick off event we will be collecting food and toys at the following locations until Dec 13, 2010, just look for the signs and boxes to drop your donations off within the locations listed:
Canadian Tire, Rona Cashway, Sharpes Food Market, Bills No Frills, LCBO, Giant Tiger, Home Hardware, Stedmans, Liquidation World, Campbellford Office Supplies and More and the Campbellford Community Resource Centre.
