The Bay of Quinte Youth Council is kicking off the season with an initiative to help our area’s most vulnerable residents.
The youth council is launching a Spring Showers event, aimed at raising donations of hygiene products and toiletries, to be donated to local food banks.
The project includes two parts.
The first is a challenge to local high schools to collect as many items as they can, with the class that collects the most products being rewarded with a prize.
The second part is a request to the community and constituents in the Bay of Quinte riding, to donate to the initiative as well.
Donated items will be given to the Gleaners, Trenton Care and Share and Wellington Storehouse food banks.
Donations can be dropped off at the following locations:
100 Station Street, Belleville
– Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (inside main entrance)
– Monday to Thursday after 4:30 p.m. (No Limits Cafe at the back of the building)
