Its Thursday before a long weekend and we normally expect to have more than the usual number of deliveries. There were some very unique toy items donated over the week that our volunteers are adding to some of the family supplies just for today’s deliveries to make the weekend more fun.
Today we received the actual final cheque from the Burlington Dads Group. The Dads help out so many charities in Burlington and put their heart and soul into every event so we consider ourselves lucky to have been a part of their Bottle Drive last weekend. The event raised $6,110 plus 387 lbs of food and was split between two charities, Halton Women’s Place and the Burlington Food Bank. in the photo are Robin Bailey (Food Bank), Darcy Douglas, Stephen Cardoso, Peter Winstanley and Tobin Izatt – Not shown are Angelo Marra and Ryan Baker who were also a big part of the Drive.
