To the Editor,
As we look ahead to Christmas, we are drawn to the season of giving and of helping others. What can we do? What can you and your family do in these “COVID-19 times.”
The Haliburton and District Lions Club would like to invite you and your family to participate in this year’s Reverse Advent Calendar. The Reverse Advent Calendar is a do-it-at-home project that collects food for our local food bank. Post the Reverse Advent Calendar on your fridge or keep it handy in your kitchen. Place a collection box or basket nearby and each day in November, add the food item of the day to your collection. Then, bring your box of food to the 4Cs Food Bank on Monday, Nov. 30 at 10 a.m. The Haliburton Lions will be there with their food boxes and would appreciate being able to thank you and invite you be part of our socially distanced group picture. Also, please wear a mask. If this date and time doesn’t work for you, please feel most welcome to drop it off at another time or contact the Haliburton Lions and we will arrange to pick it up for you.
Being able to help others, especially during the COVID-19 times, is a gift to all. We hope you and your family will participate.
Haliburton and District Lions Club
