A camp-out with a cause, “Operation Cold Turkey” in Alexandria this weekend will raise awareness of poverty and help the local food bank.

The Glengarry Stormont Branch of Clan Donald, the people who saved the 2017 Festival of Lights, and brought McSanta to Martintown and the first Kilt Skate to Alexandria earlier this month, are at it again with another community event, this time with a focus on poverty and food security.

Read about it in the February 28 edition of The Glengarry News.

"This is a generous community," notes Claude Brunet as he, his wife, Hilda, and Donat Whissell accept a $5,000 donation from Jean Coutu store owner Hélène Lauzon on behalf of the St. Vincent de Paul Society food bank. The business donated 250 $20 gift cards to people who received Christmas baskets this year.
