Meet Your Neighbour Week

August 14th to the 21st was Meet Your Neighbour Week August! A full week of connecting with all of the amazing residents that make Willowdale such a special place! 

The week consisted of a series of meet ups in our neighbourhood organized for neighbours by neighbours!

 

Hosts registered and received a Meet Your Neighbour Kit with posters and activity ideas. They went on to invite neighbours for barbecues on their driveways, get togethers in parks and lemonade and freezies on their front lawns! 

Food Bank Collection

Neighbour meet ups doubled as mini food drives where meet up hosts asked their neighbours to bring non-perishable food items with them when they stopped by. 

All food collected will be going NeighbourLink's new food hub opening at 415 Willowdale in the fall
