When it comes to making sure that youngsters in the community have a happy Christmas morning, it takes partners like Saugeen Shores Police Service and Mowbray’s Canadian Tire of Port Elgin.
From 10AM to 3PM on Saturday (Dec. 15/18), Mowbray’s and local police held a toy drive at the Canadian Tire location in Port Elgin and, as has been seen in the community, giving has become an incredible tradition. The ‘Stuff a Cruiser’ became a stuff a van and truck as toys overflowed both vehicles.
“This community is so impressive when it comes to giving to those in need,” said Police Chief Mike Bellai. “We recently held a food drive for the local Food Bank and the community came forward with absolutely incredible donations. We collected 1,606 pounds of food, $295 in gift cards and cash of $2,704.20 outside of Rowland’s Independent Grocer. Now, the community has stepped up again with toys.”
