Nearly three dozen youth gathered at the Nourish Community Hub in Cannington Friday (Nov. 22) night to lend a hand to the Seniors Greetings program.
Started by Cannington resident, Jennifer Leece in 2012, the initiative aims to distribute hundreds of handmade holiday cards to seniors in Brock Township, Scugog, Uxbridge and Kawartha Lakes.
The assembled youth made more than 100 cards through the evening and also contributed $100 in donations for supplies.
“I can’t get over how fantastic tonight turned out…way to go everyone, we’re going to bring holiday cheer to so many people this year,” Leece said.
All participants received an elf hat for helping out and were treated to special screening of the animated holiday classic ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas.’
