Local residents are invited to attend one or both of a pair of tree lighting ceremonies and community food drives planned for this week.
Toronto-Danforth Councillor Paula Fletcher hosts a Tree Lighting celebration this evening (Wednesday, Nov. 28) in Greenwood Park, Coxwell Avenue and Dundas Street, starting at 5:30 p.m.
The next night, Thursday, the annual Tree Lighting in Leslie Grove Park takes place at 5:30 p.m. The park is located at Queen Street East and Jones Avenue.
Both events will feature hot chocolate, snacks and entertainment, and those attending are asked to bring a donation of a non-perishable food item for donation to local food banks. Items collected at Wednesday’s tree lighting will go to the Glen Rhodes Food Bank.
