Christmas Caravan 2017

Dear Markland Wood Residents,

On Sunday, December 10th, the Markland Wood Homeowners Association celebratd our 50th annual Christmas Caravan. This is our annual event to collect non-perishable foods items and/or cash donations from every home on every street in Markland Wood.

 

The Caravan includes a sound vehicle to “herald a carol”, a jolly old man in a red suit riding in a Markland Wood 49th Annual Christmas Caravan & Food Drivegolf cart (the reindeer are resting up for the big day), Police vehicles and a big Fire Truck, transport trailer and dozens of elves collected door to door. You will hear us coming but if you are away, we ask that you to please leave your donations on your front doorstep for collection. No matter what the weather is like on Sunday, our Caravan with its many volunteers will knock on doors to ask for your donations.

Markland Wood 49th Annual Christmas Caravan & Food Drive

We start The Caravan at the Markland Wood Plaza at 8:45 a.m. where all volunteers assembled and cheerfully started our collection on the north side of Bloor St. We have a break for a hot chocolate at Silverthorn CI, collect some more and then have a quick lunch at the Bloordale United Church. During the afternoon we collect on the south side of Bloor St., starting at around 1:30 p.m. and finished at around 3:30 p.m. where we cheerfully unload the donated collections.

The food donation recipients are:
The Daily Bread Food Bank,
The Brothers of the Good Shepherd &
The Scott Mission

The money collected goes in full to the Toronto Star Santa Claus Fund.

The Caravan always qualifies for high school volunteer hours.

Merry Christmas & thank you for your generosity!
