Give from the heart
The OPP and the Hawkesbury Rotary Club are looking for some giving hearts.
The two join forces this weekend for a two-day fundraising blitz at local stores to raise money for the Banque alimentaire centrale de Hawkesbury Central Food Bank.
Staff Sgt. Nicola Musacchio of the Hawkesbury OPP auxiliary and Suzanne Hocquard of the Rotary Club manned the Friday morning post outside of the entrance at the FreshCo grocery store on Spence Street across from the Hawkesbury & District General Hospital. That donation site will be in place until 4 p.m. for Friday.
The OPP and Rotary Club move their food bank collection drive on Saturday to the Laurin Independent Grocers in the highway shopping mall section off the intersection of Cameron Street and County Road 17. Police volunteers and Rotarians will be on hand to accept donations there from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
