Your help went a long way! Dear Editor Our great community enthusiastically supported Operation Scugog and surrounding area this past Christmas, helping 91 families and 127 singles and couples have a merrier holiday season. A special thank you once again to our “Hoodie Elf”, Sandy O’Hare, and her Facebook friends for donating a total of 165 new hoodies as well as hand knit items, socks, shirts, sweaters and a winter coat. Drop off locations for food, toys and hoodies were supported by BMO, Canadian Tire, Emmerson Insurance, Focus on Scugog, Foodland, Gus Brown, McDonald’s, PP Print, Royal Bank, Scotia Bank, Shoppers Drug Mart, Vos’ Independent Grocers and Walmart. Thank you also to Herrington’s, Foodland, McDonald’s and Vos’ Independent Grocer for accepting cash donations on behalf of Operation Scugog. Hamper Day at Victory Christian Centre ran like a well-oiled machine thanks to our many volunteers. Thanks to McDonald’s and Hanks for donating coffee, muffins and donuts. A delicious lunch was provided by Port Perry United Church for our volunteers. All the volunteers that make up Operation Scugog would like to say a huge thank you to those who adopted families, as well as to those groups, individuals and businesses that donated food, gifts, gift cards, money and time to support our Hamper Day. You were instrumental in making the 2018 Christmas Campaign a huge success. Karen Teed, Operation Scugog Christmas Campaign Coorinator A special Scouting Thank You Dear Editor I would like to thank all of the volunteers, helpers and buyers of Scout Christmas Trees from our lot at Canadian Tire. We had the best year yet for sales and sold our 400 beautiful trees by Sunday December 16, which is the earliest ever. This is a major fundraiser for supporting the activities and events of 1st Port Perry Scouts. I would like to extend a special thanks to Focus on Scugog for the wonderful coverage of our Scout Christmas Tree sales. I am sure this was a big help in contributing to this great year for Scout Christmas Trees. All the best to you and your colleagues at Focus for a great 2019! Bill Swan, Treasurer, 1st Port Perry Scouts
