Aurora is now getting into the spirit of giving. While it is always a good thing to receive a gift during the festive season, many individuals and families do not have means to buy essential goods, including food, clothing, and personal hygiene products, never minding extra things to receive from people as gifts. Highlighted below are the ways that help numerous organizations get into the spirit of giving.
Salvation Army Kettles
The Salvation Army, The Town of Aurora as well, as the neighborhood will commence the yearly Aurora Salvation Army on the Kettle drive on the 28th of November which will be wrapped up in the 24th of December. All the donations that will be collected through this movement will be channeled towards supporting the less fortunate and marginalized members of the community throughout the year as well as the holiday season. Kettles shall be located Superstore in the Real Canadian, three LCBO and Metro outlets in Aurora. Please visit salvation army.ca
Aurora Lion’s Club
The Aurora Lion’s Club that has been lending a helping hand to the local community from the year 1944 will join forces once again to provide assistance to those in need with the Salvation Army. The movement that is chaired by the local Lion Bondy Jim will be collecting the non-perishable foods, gifts for children and the teens, and winter warmth items as well as the cash to be used for buying grocery gifts card.
The chairperson said that everyone finds themselves short of donation funds for the gift cards, and the cost is about nine thousand to ten thousand dollars per year. Also, the Fro Frills mall, the club will be preoccupied by wrapping gifts for toys or donations for the 153 units for close to three Saturdays, and this will begin from the 5th of December at 9:00 am to evening 4:00 pm and Thursdays from 6 to 9 pm.
