Rockland Family Centre, in partnership with Prescott-Russell Group Action for Children, Families and Community, launches its 16th annual Snowsuit Campaign with the goal of making sure that children of families in need have a warm snowsuit so they can play outside during the winter.
Applications for snowsuits are now being taken by phone at 613-446-4220 or at the Group Action website at www.groupeaction.ca and parents are advised to phone in requests before October 29 as the first day of distribution of snowuits is November 5.
All applicants will receive instructions on where to pick up the snowsuits and Family Centre staff and volunteers will make sure that public health safety guidelines are followed for delivery and distribution of snowsuits.
Fundraising is also in progress to support the annual Snowsuit Campaign. The Broadway Restaurant will serve as the host site for the November 12 fundraiser breakfast, on a first-come first-served basis, 7 a.m. to noon. Donations by Interac are also accepted online at the Group Action website at www.groupeaction.ca.
