“We called it ‘Leave a tin on your drive’ to convey a simple message: if every house in East Hatley and Hatley St George is able to out something, it will amount to over 80 items of support those in need locally.

As you can see from the photo, there was a lot of very generous support, which is quite overwhelming in these tough times.
