November Donation Drive
November is a month to remember our neighbours, those around us who could use a helping hand. This neighbourly November our community league would like to invite you to be a part of our Donation Drop on Sunday, November 28th from 1-4pm at the hall.
Donation Categories include:
FOOD: non-perishable food items
CLOTHING ITEMS: Including mitts/gloves/toques, long underwear, jacket, snow pants, shoes/boots, clothing of all sizes including children/youth & adults, socks/underwear (NOTE: All items can be new or used, except socks/underwear which are new only, please),
TOYS: ‘Tis the season!
Come drop your donation items off at the hall anytime between 1-4pm. To make our donation drop COVID friendly, there will be a physically distanced outside table, where all donation bins will be labeled to allow you to drop & go.
Donations will be delivered to the following organizations to provide to our neighbours in need:
Royal Alexandra Emergency Department patients & Inner City Non-Profit Agencies: The dropping temperatures in our city hurt those in our community who don’t have warm shelter to call home. We are collecting items to give to the social workers at Edmonton’s Inner city hospital, the Royal Alexandra, which will be given to patients in need or passed on to other Inner City agencies.
Food Bank: Through the support of our community we provide food for over 20,000 people each month. By giving to Edmonton's Food Bank you are not only feeding people...you are giving hope and creating a kinder community. (most needed items poster attached)
Santas Anonymous: The mission of 630 CHED Santas Anonymous is simple: to see every child receive a new toy at Christmas. Relying on thousands of volunteers and donors, 630 CHED Santas Anonymous now collects, sorts, packages, and delivers toys to over 20,000 children every year. Please consider that volunteers need to place all gifts for one family into one delivery bag when purchasing toys. We provide toys for children from infants to 12 years of age only. (recommended list below)
We are excited to spread our Lansdowne neighbourly spirit this November!
Light Up Lansdowne!
As was the case last year, we have decided to forgo our annual in person neighbourhood holiday party given current pandemic conditions. Instead, we will again be lighting up the hall area and the park area with some festive holiday lights. We hope you and yours will enjoy them!
