Who needs Superman or Wonder Woman when you have a team of local heroes (Paramedics, Fire Fighters and Police Officers) working extra hard to make sure this Christmas is extra special for the community?!
Our community heroes need your help! The community’s support, so far this year, has been overwhelming. There are many different ways you can get involved including:
· The Brant/Brantford Paramedics are celebrating their second year of sharing Christmas with Seniors. Sharing the Christmas spirit with Seniors, who do not have many visitors, is definitely a way to spread holiday cheer. This year, Paramedics, with help from the community, will be buying gifts for and spending time on December 19, 2018 with 50 Seniors. Your generous donations are greatly appreciated.
· County of Brant Fire Fighters, Paramedics and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) will be participating in several upcoming events to collect non-perishable food and new unwrapped toys for local Christmas Hamper programs at the following locations:
• December 1 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm at The Windmill Market in Mount Pleasant.
• December 8, 9, 15 and 16 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm at No Frills and Sobeys in Paris, Foodland in Burford and Food Town in St. George.
· The “Fill An Ambulance” Toy Drive needs your generosity on Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at Giant Tiger, 82 King George St., Brantford. Please consider helping to brighten a child’s Christmas morning.
· The Brant/Brantford Paramedics are collecting donations of warm winter wear (coats, hats, gloves and socks) for the community, in partnership with Freedom House. They will be collecting winter wear until the end of 2018.
