Thinking Outside the Box: Aperitif & Food Drive - February 15, 2017

CCR is delighted to do another combined event with Free Exchange to benefit our charity Project Rome. This fun-filled aperitif will allow all members and friends to participate in aiding Project Rome by preparing boxes with extremely needed personal items for the homeless and less fortunate people in Rome.

All we ask is that you help to fill shoe boxes with items that CCR will provide (if you have some, you could bring an empty shoe box or two but we'll have some for those who can't find any at home!). Your good spirit and caring nature will do the rest. But if you happen to have some extras of the following items, your contribution is welcome since there is an ongoing need: pasta, rice, legumes (pulses), canned tomatoes (passata), potatoes, olive oil, plastic plates, cups, spoons and serviettes – as well as non-food items such as candles for those living in the dark.

Our effort aims to assist Project Rome and also to promote Canada 150 (the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation) in conjunction with the Canadian Embassy in Rome, and so we hope to collect more than 150 items such as those above!

Time: 6:30-9 p.m.
