To the Editor,
Operation Scugog served approximately 200 families this past Christmas. Thank you to everyone who donated food, gifts, money and time. We are so lucky to have so many wonderful volunteers. The recent food and toy drive was a huge success.
Business and private donors got on board, along with our adopters. Drop off locations such as BMO, Canadian Tire, CIBC, The Standard Newspaper, Foodland, Gus Brown, McDonald’s, Micklegate Realtor, PP Print, Royal Bank, Scotiabank, Scugog Visitor and Business Centre, Shoppers Drug Mart and Vos’ Independent had their toy boxes filled. The toy blitz days were supported by Canadian Tire, Walmart, McDonald’s, Shoppers Drug Mart, Vos’ and Foodland.
Thank you to Gus Brown for the use of the toy van, Designs by Deb for doing the detailing, and Flielers Ultramar for filling up the gas tank.
Thank you also goes to Mark Lee for once again being our toy van driver, Laura Armstrong and family for helping out every weekend with the toy van, Hope Christian Reformed Church for providing a delicious on our hamper day, Victory Christian Centre for the use of their facilities and Anchor Storage for storing all the toys and gifts.
Vos’ Independent and Canadian Tire had their annual ‘Toonie at the till’, Herrington’s displayed a donation box with the proceeds going to the purchase of ground beef for our clients. Canadian Tire as well as one of our volunteers and her Facebook friends along with the Port Perry Angels managed to collect over 100 hoodies.
Thank you to one and all for helping those in need. We are so fortunate to live in such a caring and giving community.
