No room for cars in Angela’s garage; with schools closing their doors for the summer mats are coming in fast and furious! Our wonderful volunteers keep driving vans and SUVs to the depot and more mats come daily.
Angela recently hosted a pot luck lunch which was attended by volunteers, corporate supporters and a representative from Canada Food for Children. This was a time to brainstorm and share ideas. We need help to sustain our rapid growth! The segment aired by CTV was so successful that we are inundated with requests for milk bags and mats drop-off locations as well as directions for starting new weaving groups. Our supporters at Celestica have offered to help us to put a locations map on the website. In the mean time, will anyone accepting boxes of bags in Ontario post it on our Facebook page. In July, we will update our little site to make it more efficient.
Purolator Canada is now sending us used courier envelopes. Strong, waterproof we are beginning to incorporate them into making the mattresses. Soon we will let you know how to use them.
Have a safe and wonderful summer!
