NORTH DURHAM: The season of giving is here in North Durham. On Tuesday, Nov. 1st, Uxbridge Public School students donated new stuffed animals to Markham Stouffville Hospital. Liam Elliott and Nate Hobor, students; along with Laurel Galt, Principal of Uxbridge P. S.; Liam's mom and 2015-16 Volunteer of the Year, from Uxbridge Public School; and Joy-Anne Paul, from QSP; joined Carla Peacock, Senior Communications Specialist; and Julie Atkinson, of Child Life from Markham Stouffville Hospital, to make the donation happen.
The Township of Uxbridge recently announced, the Farm to Train event, held in late September, raised a total of $7,000 for the local Loaves and Fishes food bank.
In Scugog, Port Perry’s Taylor Ford dealership worked with R.H. Cornish Public School and S.A. Cawker Public School this October, to raise non-perishable-goods-donations in support of Operation Scugog Food Bank. The initiative was called ‘We Scare Hunger.’
“We understand how difficult it is to end hunger worldwide, but with the help of our community and schools, we hope to make an impact locally, ending hunger for as many families as possible right here in Port Perry,” said Larry Taylor, dealer principal, Taylor Ford. “One meal can make a huge difference.”
The students from both schools worked hard this year, to collect three and a half truck loads of of food.
Operation Scugog Food Bank was thrilled at the result, thanking the dealership and schools for their tireless fundraising efforts.
