Final drop-off for 2016: Dec 17

Hi, everyone. Well, we’re now into December and Mr McLaren will be getting ready to take his trailer down to Mississauga and the CFFC (Canadian Food for Children) warehouse, with a stop-over in Lindsay to drop items off for Anne Downey. He’d like all deliveries made to the trailer by Saturday, 17 December; he will be heading out the next day, 18 Dec., unless the weather’s bad.

Anne Downey has passed along her wish-list of items; these will be added last to the trailer, so they’ll be easy to find and unload. So here’s Anne’s list:

  • baby things: blankets, sleepers, onesies, clothes, sweaters, etc
  • good used towels, flannel sheets; textiles in general
  • warm clothes
  • winter clothes

Please mark all boxes for Anne Downey with `LINDSAY, so they’re easily identified in the trailer load.

Click on this link for a .pdf map of the drop-off-location. Note that there’s a tree that obscures the street sign (when you’re heading east on Heron Rd.). There’s a tally sheet taped to the inside of the trailer door; please take the time to write how many mats/bags you’ve added, as well as noting any boxes for the Lindsay drop-off. At present, there are about 200 mats.

This will be the last time for Mr McLaren’s trailer this winter. We will have to make other arrangements until either it or another location becomes available next spring, so if you can, hold on to your finished mats and bags. Perhaps share the storage load with a few friends. If anyone has space to offer, please leave a message here in the Comments area.

So – 2 more weeks to get things finished! Thanks, everyone, for making this a really successful drop-off location! And thank you especially, Mr McLaren, for having offered it to us this year – it’s been a marvelous space.

  1. Just to let you know.. If Dr. McLaren is willing and if you need, there are hundreds of boxes of new milk bags at Canadain Food For Children. I am passing out a few hundred a month, but there are still lots there, take as many as you need for the return trip. The drop off of the mats will be to the second door of the warehouse; the boxes of new bags are near the first door of the warehouse.
