Bank On Bellies - Kindness Crusaders

NEIGHBOURS OF JOSHUA CREEK PLEASE SUPPORT MY FIRST FULL NEIGHBOURHOOD WIDE FOOD DRIVE, BEGINNING OCTOBER 15TH - 21ST, AND FILL EMPTY BELLIES AT KERR STREET MISSION BY DROPPING OF NON-PERISHABLE FOOD ITEMS TO COLLECTION LOCATIONS THROUGHOUT OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD.  AT THIS TIME I AM SO HAPPY TO SAY WE HAVE BANK ON BELLIES FAMILY AMBASSADORS ON THESE STREETS; GAMBLE, BLUE STREAM, ROCKINGHAM, RIDEAU, SUMMERHILL, AWENDA , KESTELL BLVD, GLOBAL PET FOODS (UPPER OAKVILLE SHOPPING CENTRE), FINN MACCOOL'S, COBS BREAD (UPPER MIDDLE ROAD) AND OF COURSE YOU CAN DROP FOOD OFF AT KERR STREET MISSION.  

 

IT IS EASY TO GET MORE INVOLVED; YOU COULD BE A FAMILY AMBASSADOR, YOU COULD GET A FEW FRIENDS TOGETHER AND COLLECT FOOD IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD, YOU CAN EVEN COLLECT FOOD WHILRE WALKING YOUR DOG AND GET VOLUNTEER HOURS  WHILE BEING AMAZING! MY HOPE AND GOAL IS TO ORGANIZE FOOD DRIVES ONE NEIGHBOURHOOD AT A TIME, BUT EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO DONATE YOU DO NOT NEED TO LIVE IN JOSHUA CREEK! 

 

IF YOU WANT TO SIGN ON AS A FAMILY AMBASSADOR IT IS SIMPLE, ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS:

 

1. PUT A SIGN ON YOUR LAWN ON THE FIRST DAY OF THE FOOD DRIVE, ADVERTISING THAT YOU ARE A FOOD DROP OFF LOCATION (SIGN PROVIDED). 

2. IF YOU HAVE A WAGON YOU COULD LEAVE IT ON YOUR PORCH OR LAWN FOR PEOPLE TO FILL, A BOX WOULD ALSO WORK!

3. MAKE A SIGN THANKING PEOPLE FOR THEIR DONATION AND PLACE IT BY WHEREVER YOU WANT PEOPLE TO DROP THEIR DONATIONS. FOR EXAMPLE BESIDE THE WAGON/BOX ON YOUR PORCH. YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE HOME TO COLLECT, YOUR HOME IS A DROP OFF LOCATION.

4. WHEN THE FOOD DRIVE IS OVER YOU CAN JOIN ME AND MY FAMILY AND DELIVER THE DONATED FOOD TO KERR STREET MISSION OR WE WILL COME TO YOUR HOME, COLLECT, AND DROP IT OFF AT KSM.  

 

FOR TEENS LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEER HOURS THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO PARTICIPATE AND COLLECT HOURS.  JUST MAKE SURE YOU KEEP TRACK OF HOW MUCH TIME YOU ARE SPENDING ON COLLECTING, BRING YOUR FORM AND WE WILL SIGN IT.
