I am happy to let residents know that the Annual Scout and Guide Spring Food Drive will be taking place from April 3 -11.
The Uniformed Youth of Stittsville’s Scout Sections and Guide Units will be going door-to-door, collecting non-perishable food items and/or cash donations for the benefit of The Stittsville Food Bank. The generosity of Stittsville residents is once again being counted on to ensure the success of this Food Drive.
The youth should not be knocking/ringing on doors past 8:30 PM, but enthusiasm sometimes gets the better of time keeping. Please put a clear notice on your front door (near the bell) if you don’t want to be disturbed and/or leave canned goods outside your door (if you wish), but please bear in mind the above mentioned enthusiasm of the youth if they miss the sign.
The Spring Food Drive is a necessity to re-fill the shelves of the Stittsville Food Bank after a long winter. I highly encourage all residents to have a non-perishable food item on hand to help contribute to the health and wellbeing of our most vulnerable.
