The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

The Sharing Place

We got a note through the mailslot today, it had a very important message in it.

The Sharing Place is our local Compassionate Centre serving those with mental, physical and economic needs in your neighbourhood. They need the following items before December 10.
If your family can help it would be greatly appreciated. Items can be dropped off at the side door near the parking lot. Tuesdays and Thrusdays 8:30-12:30 and 5:30-8:30pm. Small gifts for men and women toiletries, scarves, gloves, vouchers for MacDonalds and Tim Hortons.
  • canned goods
  • kraft dinner
  • rice
  • cookies and crackers
  • peanut butter & jam
  • cereal
  • pasta
  • tomato sauce
This is always a great oppurtunity to get kids involved in helping someone else. You can go through your own cupboards and/or add items to a grocery list. Nothing feels better and is more empowering than helping someone else.
There are organizations like this in every neighbourhood. If you go to and click on donate and then individual donations, at the bottom you can click on firehalls or drop off locations to find somewhere near you.

Happy Giving!
