Letter to the Editor
Operation Scugog Food Bank was graciously supported by the community and beyond for the 2015 Christmas campaign. Over 200 families, singles and couples were supported this past Christmas.
A huge Thank You to all those who adopted families at Christmas and those who donated food, gifts, money and their time to help with our hamper program. We couldn’t do it without you.
Drop off locations for food and toys were supported by BMO, Canadian Tire, CIBC, Foodland, Gus Brown, McDonald’s, PP Print, RBC, Scotiabank, Scugog Visitor & Business Centre, Shoppers Drug Mart, The Standard News, Vos Independent and Walmart.
Thank you to Vos Independent for having their “Toonie at the Till”, Herrington’s for having a donation box with the money going towards our ground beef orders, Gus Brown for the use of the Toy van, Flielers Ultramar for filling up the tank and Designs by Deb for doing the detailing.
Canadian Tire along with Sandy O’Hare and her Facebook friends managed to collect and donate 90 hoodies and t-shirts which were distributed on our hamper day.
Thank you to Anchor Storage for storing the toys and gifts until the big day, Victory Christian Centre for the use of their facilities and support and to the Port Perry Baptist Church cooking class for putting on a hot lunch for our volunteers.
Our hamper day was mild and wet with lots of Christmas cheer thanks to all our wonderful volunteers.
Once again, Operation Scugog would like to say Thank You to all those who helped make someone’s Christmas a little brighter.
