Great Holiday Food Drive tomorrow
Tomorrow, is the day the White House of Rock and Talk hosts our annual Great Holiday Food Drive in support of Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold.
It's the day we ask you to help us "Stuff the Bus" with donations to help those in need this Christmas season.
610 CKTB News, 105.7 EZ Rock and 97.7 HTZ FM will be broadcasting tomorrow from 5:30 am to 6:00 pm in front of St. Catharines city hall, where we will also be accepting donations of non perishable food items, diapers, new clothing and cash. ( See full list below.)
Community Care CEO Betty Lou Souter says the event represents a turning point towards reaching their holiday collection goals.
We will also be set up in front of Zehr's Market at the Pen Centre where our elves will also be collecting your donations.
If you can't make it out tomorrow, you can text the word GIVE to to 20222 to make a $10 or $25 donation directly to Community Care .
Here is a list of the most needed items this holiday season:
A good rule of thumb… whatever you would want on your holiday table, including mains and sides, along with treats (fruit cake and chocolates!)
o Peanut butter
o Canned tuna/salmon, meats, stews, chili
o Canned fruit/vegetables
o Noodles & Sauce & Canned Pasta (Sidekicks, Beefaroni, Alphagetti, etc.)
o Juice (boxes and large cans)
o Baby formula and cereal
o Diapers, in particular sizes 4 months, size 5 & 6 & wipes
o NEW socks and underwear for all ages
o New clothing (construction boots are always needed!)
o Toiletries (no razors or mouthwash)
Cash donations have a big impact on those that need it most, because Community Care has the ability to stretch your donation through their purchasing capacity filling the food shelves where most needed.
Visa or MasterCard accepted on-site at the Great Holiday Food Drive
Cheques payable to Community Care of St. Catharines & Thorold.
Friday night, the IceDogs open their best of seven quarter-final series on home ice versus the Generals, some tickets are still available. The 'Dogs have also announced a bus trip to Oshawa for game three and four.
A very successful 2017-2018 IceDogs regular season came to an end Saturday afternoon with a 6-3 win over Mississauga. A sellout St Patty's Day Meridian Centre crowd watched Niagara record their 35th win of the season for a total of 80 points in the OHL's Eastern Conference as Johnny Corneil lead the way with a goal and two assists.
Kirill Maksimov enjoyed a four point night while Johnny Corneil and Ben Jones each scored a pair in the IceDogs 6-3 Friday night win in Erie. With the win, Niagara has now secured home ice advantage in their first round playoff series with Oshawa.
