Even as they fundraise for their own services, the Almonte General Hospital Fairview Manor Foundation and the Carleton Place and District Memorial Hospital Foundation want to give back. With so many in the community in need following the devastating tornadoes of September 21, Al Roberts says they decided to take advantage of the expected turn out this evening for their Car or Ca$h raffle at the Almonte Citivan Hall.
They're looking for canned proteins, fruits and vegetables as well as coffee, rice and other items that could contribute to Thanksgiving meals this weekend. You can also drop donations off at Bean Chevrolet, Buick, GMC in Carleton Place until 3:30 today. Meanwhile, the Grand Prize Draw event for the Car or Ca$h for Health Care raffle will take place at 8 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m.
