The Kiwanis Club of Huntsville Muskoka managed to raise over $5,200 and nearly 4,700 pounds of food and personal care products in just 18 hours for the Huntsville Salvation Army and families and individuals in need in the community.
The Club’s Christmas in July initiative was a success, said club secretary/treasurer Rick Brooks. “There are so many folks that make this happen each year.” Brooks thanked all volunteers as well as Huntsville’s three grocery stores for “allowing us to invade their stores and take space in their lots.”
He said the results were better than expected. “The results are even more amazing when you consider the economic conditions and the tempered expectations that we had going into this drive, to exceed our previous year’s totals in food was simply awesome. This continues to remind us just how giving the residents of Huntsville and area are.”
