Community Steps Up To Food Need


Hundreds of families donated food Saturday at the curbside drop-off organized by Scarborough Community Services as part of its Tree lighting holiday event. 


Volunteers from the local Rotary club helped with the collection.



"We filled an SUV and a trailer with food for the food bank. It was heart-warming and a lot of fun, said Rotarian Deborah Pease”, who was dressed in an elf costume. 



People were required to remain in their cars. They queued up on Quentin Drive and then, one at a time, drive along several stops including the food drop off.  



At another stop, community service staffers dropped candy canes through a cardboard tube to the kids. At the final stop on the route families visited Santa and Mrs. Clause- from their cars. 

One unsavory character did try to cause a commotion. “I didn't witness it myself, but some kids said they recognized him and they said it was definitely the Grinch" said another elf-Rotarian Rick Murphy. Apparently he was seen skulking about the food tent. “He's a mean one, that Mr. Grinch" he added. But, eventually Scarborough Police did apprehend him and save the day.

(Not really, it was just part of the fun.)
