Start collecting those canned goods together, because Paul Rushforth Real Estate is holding a food drive on Saturday, March 4th from 10 AM to 2 PM.
We’ll be collecting food donations for the Orleans-Cumberland Community Resource Centre food bank and the Kanata Food Cupboard. This is the hardest time of year for food banks, as the holidays are over and giving back isn’t always at the top of people’s minds.
How it Works
We’ll drive right to your doorstep to pick up your donations of canned goods, dried goods, and those basic hygiene items that everyone needs (see list below). Look for one of our moving trucks in your area, and a friendly Paul Rushforth Real Estate team member knocking at your door.
If you can’t be home but would like to donate, you can still get in touch with us and we will come and pick up whatever you leave on your front door step.
Here’s how to arrange a pickup:
- Call us at 613-788-2122
- Email us or use our contact form
- Tweet @paulrushforthre
- Send a message to our Paul Rushforth Real Estate Facebook page
If you’d rather make a cash donation, no problem! Cash can be given and receipts from purchases will be posted on our Facebook page for everyone to see.
