Ariane Hotte , one of the edu­ca­tors at the Mai­son de la fa­mille in Haw­kes­bu­ry holds up one of the new snow­suits al­rea­dy pur­cha­sed as part of this year’s an­nual Snow­suit Fund Cam­pai­gn. Now in its ele­venth year, the an­nual cam­pai­gn goal is help en­sure that chil­dren of fa­mi­lies in need have a new snow­suit to al­low them to play out­side safe and warm du­ring the win­ter sea­son. This year’s goal is to raise $10,000 to pur­chase 150 snow­suits for la­ter dis­tri­bu­tion in Haw­kes­bu­ry and the town­ships of Cham­plain and East Haw­kes­bu­ry. Si­mi­lar cam­pai­gns are un­der­way in Rus­sell Town­ship and Cla­rence-Ro­ck­land. Fa­mi­lies who wish to be on the snow­suit dis­tri­bu­tion list must re­gis­ter by Oct. 20 at the Mai­son de la fa­mille centre, on­line at www.grou­peac­, or phone Ariane or Aman­da at 613-632-6959. Dis­tri­bu­tion will be­gin Nov. 4. The Haw­kes­bu­ry cam­pai­gn in­cludes an Oct. 26 break­fast fun­drai­ser at Res­tau­rant Ca­role.
