An attempt to create a record-breaking “angel squad” will bolster its efforts today.
The Misericordia Health Centre Foundation has tasked flights of angels (or students) from Balmoral Hall, Kelvin High School, St. Mary’s Academy, Booth College, St. Paul’s High School, Westgate Collegiate, École Léo-Rémillard to gather at Mulvey School for a giant angel wing-making session.
The foundation gathers each holiday season to line the Maryland Bridge to raise drive-by donations for the MHCF while “angels” decked out in all white draw drivers’ attention with their halos and wings.
The goal is to beat 1,039 angels, which was set in Hauzenberg, Germany.
The angel squad will be out Wednesday, December 2 and Thursday, December 3. Drive-by donations are welcome in Sherbrook loop. Cash, cheque, MasterCard or Visa will be accepted and every donation over $10 is eligible for a tax receipt.
Angels will also be at Starbucks locations 7:30-9:30 a.m. at 201 Portage and 360 Main, as well as from 3:30–5 p.m. at Seine River Retirement Residence at 1015 St. Anne’s Road on December 2.
Donations can also be made by calling (204) 788-8458 or visiting misericordiafoundation.com.
