The Bissell Centre’s “Coldest Night of the Year” fundraising walk was held on February 28th in the downtown core. To say they crushed their fundraising AND participant goals is an understatement. LOVEPIZZA was an official rest stop and tossed some pizzas in our ovens to provide a snack for the 313 walkers - within a span of an hour or so. I turned around at one point from our dough machine and it was like a swarm of human bees hit a hive to go to work on it ... a hive of pizza. We're so proud to have been a small part of this amazing walk. The Bissell volunteer (Donna) that was assigned to our shop to help actually used the Bissell services 26 years ago as a single mother of twin girls. Donna is living proof of the lifesaving and life changing work that the centre does in our community and I'm so glad I had the opportunity to hear her story. Because it matters. Get out and support these local groups!
