Throughout the month of April, residents and employees at the Delmanor Glen Abbey Seniors Community in Oakville worked together to amass a generous amount of gently-used clothing to donate to The Salvation Army.
On May 10th, Delmanor Recreational Manager Marilyn Cook and Driver Kurt Anderson, dropped-off roughly 240 pounds of donations to the Oakville Recycling Centre.
“We are extremely pleased with the results of the donations collected by our residents and employees and we hope our contribution will help the Salvation Army to help those who are in need of support in our community,” said Marilyn.
Marilyn said the collection drive was great fun for many of the 120 residents at Delmanor Glen Abbey and it was their collective decision to donate to The Salvation Army.
Marilyn says they are already looking ahead this year to plan a Fall clothing drive to support what they consider to be a very worthy organization.
