We look forward to fall here in Ontario all year long because it is arguably one of the most beautiful seasons with the vibrant fall colours and crisp chill in the air. We also enjoy autumn because it provides an opportunity for reflection and change as we prepare to head into the holidays.
While you enjoy everything fall has to offer, we hope you take a minute to review our holiday hours. This season’s newsletter also includes some ideas for getting the most out of the season and some links to articles we think you’ll enjoy.
Our Upcoming Office Hours
Our office will be closed on Friday October 6 and Monday October 9 in observance of Thanksgiving. If you want to meet with us ahead of the long weekend, please get in touch.
On Friday October 6, your advisor will be monitoring their voicemail for investment inquiries, and they will return your call as quickly as possible. You must speak with your advisor to move forward with any inquiries. We cannot proceed with voicemail or email instructions. Any other inquiries will be handled upon our return to the office on Tuesday October 10.
Sharing the Bounty of the Season
Whether you can support a local organization that helps those in need this season or perhaps donate some extras while doing your holiday grocery shopping or pantry cleanout, we though we would compile a list of some local organizations doing good in our community.
- The Collingwood Mobile Soup Kitchen is relatively new in our community and already doing great work facilitating donations from grocery stores, restaurants, and individuals, helping those in need. You can lend a hand by buying extra perishable or non-perishable items and dropping them off at their community pantry on Erie Street. You can also volunteer your time. This organization has recently established some great partnerships to help get food that would otherwise be wasted to those who need it. Read more about this initiative here.
- The Busby Center provides outreach services in the Georgian Triangle and is a great place to support if you are looking to make a financial contribution. This organization specifically supports those at risk of homelessness by offering nontraditional methods of accessing care. They also provide individual advocacy, resources, referrals, and support to individuals in need. You can read more about their services and donate here.
As always, our established local food banks will be helping those in need this season, as they do every day. Find them online to donate or offer your support.
- The Salvation Army – Collingwood Food Bank, Collingwood
- Society of St. Vincent de Paul – Collingwood
