Help scare hunger with Maitland Ford Lincoln October 1st-31st 2017
For the fourth year, Maitland Ford Lincoln has worked with our community partners to “Scare Hunger”.
This year, over 10,700 food items were collected and delivered to 6 local foodbanks.
Mayor Christian Provernanzo comes to Maitland Ford to help kick off the scare hunger campaign for 2017.
Food collection begins at Romes Independent Grocery Store Oct 18/19: Students from all the participating WE schools helped to collect food items.
Food Collection at Pinos’ Get Fresh Oct 21/28: Students from all the participating WE schools were on site to explain our cause and ask shoppers for a donation.
Neighbour hood Paper Bag Pick up: Paper bags are dropped off in the neighbourhoods surrounding the student’s schools. Two days later, we returned to the neighbourhoods and picked up the paper bags that were filled.
Sorting of items to be delivered: This is a massive job that is organized and completed by the teachers and students of St. Mary’s College
Delivery to Food Banks: Food items were loaded into the vehicles and delivered to the 7 different food banks with the help of St. Mary’s College and Sault College students.

Eyes On The Road Event
This fall, Young Driver’s hosted an “Eyes on the Road” event to raise awareness about distracted driving. Community members, including Police Chief participated in a challenge to better understand the effects of distracted driving. Participants drove through a timed course set up in the Station Mall parking lot, once while dealing with distractions, including answering a phone call and responding, counting aloud, putting on sunglasses, and avoiding a cyclist. Then participants completed the course a second time, but distraction free. The two times were compared, and time penalties were added for errors made such as failing to see the cyclist or running into a cone. In all cases, the distracted-free course was completed quicker and with fewer errors.
