Our year is coming to an end, and I must say it is going to end with an exciting finish. Our goal was 4032 mats (2016 x 2). We have far exceeded the count and we still have 2 months to go. As of today, we have delivered 4706 mats to Canadian Food for Children and to places in Toronto where we also have needs.
I wanted to let you know I almost always have milk bags here at my house, but sometimes I run out and have to get more from where I store them at Canadian Food for Children’s warehouse. I just received another 354 boxes of bags and with the couple hundred I had before this delivery, we have a lot of bags. If you are in Mississauga and would like to pick up your own bags when you deliver mats, by all means, help yourself to boxes of bags. The volunteers there know they are there for the taking. The address of the warehouse is 1258 Lakeshore Rd. E. Mississauga. They are open Monday to Friday from 8 AM until noon.
However, if you would like bags from me, please email me and let me know how may boxes you would like. My intention is to gather boxes of bags for another “pick up your bags” day on TUESDAY, November 29th (I have highlighted Tuesday because usually our bag day is on Thursday). I will likely have bags in December, but will not have a specific bag day due to it being a busy month. If you would like to stock up with boxes of bags so you have enough until sometime in January, please let me know.
I will start bringing boxes home for all your needs, but I would like to be able to put my vehicle in the garage over the snowy months, so if you would be so kind as to come and get what you think you need, I would appreciate it.
Thank you for all your hard work. Looking forward to hearing from you.
You are helping to make a difference in this world with your volunteering.
