Food Drive

It's rearranging day in the store. We needed to find somewhere for the Technicolor Cowl kits. This snowballed into moving this and moving that. That lead me to marking down some kits.
These awesome scarf kits are easy to make. You knit the scarf and attach the already knit arms, legs, tails and faces. And they are so cute.

We are marking the kits down to $20 while supplies last.
 You can knit them up and put them away for next year's Christmas presents.

It's also time to start thinking about the Ancaster Community Food Drive. The food drive serves all of the major Food Serving Agencies in the city such as: Neighbour to Neighbour; Greater Hamilton Food Share, Mission Services of Hamilton, Good Shepherd Centre, The Salvation Army, St. Matthew’s House, Wesley Urban Ministries and Ancaster Community Services.

We will be collecting food and cash. These need to be in the store by Wednesday, February 17. One food item will give you one entry. What will that entry get you? The first name drawn will win a wonderful gift basket of yarn and accessories donated by our suppliers. The next three names drawn will win $50 gift certificates to the store. Cash is also welcome. We will give you 10 tickets for a $10 donation and 25 tickets for a $20 donation.

The most needed food items are
  • hot cereals of any kind
  • canned meats and fish
  • peanut butter
  • meat soups
  • canned or powder milk
  • baby food and formula (needs to have at least 8 weeks until expiry left on it)
  • canned fruits and vegetables
  • canned pasta
  • dry pasta
  • pasta sauce
  • toiletries
Thanks to all who have donated in the past and I hope that you can help us out again.

You can read more about the day on the Ancaster Community Food Drive Facebook Page.
