Caravan 2014 was again a huge success and the residents of Markland should be very proud for being able to help so many. The day was beautiful and the donations plentiful.
Close to 18,000 lbs. of food, a truckload of clothes and almost $1,000.00 in cash. One of our biggest yet!
Our recipients were the Brothers of the Good Shepherd, The Scott Mission and the Daily Bread Food Bank. The clothing was donated to Goodwill of Toronto. Monies were distributed to The Toronto Star Santa Fund and house wares donated to the Furniture Bank.
