The Children's Breakfast Club assists children in need by providing 4,000 breakfast meals each week to students across Ontario.  At times, additional needs are identified such as warm clothing, which is provided during the cold winter months.

The clothing donated will be sorted and then distributed as needed. Officers were pleased to be given the opportunity to help the local community in this endeavour on October 16 at the Peanut Plaza by sorting and packaging clothing for distribution.

To donate warm clothing please contact Rick Gosling at 905-474-8054 or visit their website.
