2018 Food & Toy Drive Wraps Up

December 17, 2018

Thank You for Your Generosity Niagara

December 17, 2018, Niagara-on-the-Lake – Niagara-on-the-Lake Hydro Inc would like to thank all the residents and business of the area for another successful Food & Toy Drive. The 2018 drive collected well over 1,000 lbs of non-perishable donations, cash and toy donations to help fellow Niagara residents in need. The donations helped support 3 of Niagara’s established social charities:

  • Newark Neighbours is the only food bank and thrift store serving Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and has been in operation for 46 years. It has been the main recipient of the food & toy drive since it began 8 years ago.
  • Gillian’s Place is one of Ontario’s first shelters for abused women and children and primarily received donated toys for children under 3.
  • Project SHARE provides emergency food to an average of 100 families per day who are living below the poverty line in Niagara Falls. Project Share received the majority of toy donations and some food donations.

Donations to these important charities are welcomed year-round.

Another big thank you goes to the staff at NOTL Hydro and volunteers who helped organize and collect donations to make this event a success.
