Today is the day - Giving Tuesday! Following some busy shopping days where many people are focused on commercialism and what to buy for others, today the world pauses to reflect and think about how they can give back to their communities.

If you are able, we would like to encourage everyone at LDSS to bring in any of the following: 1) non-perishable food items; 2) new, unwrapped toys; and/or 3) new or gently used and freshly laundered winter clothing items including coats, boots, hats and mittens.

Let's show It Takes a Village and the Listowel Community some love on #givingtuesday.
