#ygkChallenge: TP the Town

TP the Town, Partners in Mission Food Bank, Kingston, OntarioThe #ygkchallenge is an ongoing series where we dare you to be different, resolve to be better, and or do something awesome in support of our beloved community. Each week, Kingstonist establishes a new, ambitious or quirky goal, encouraging you to step out of your comfort zone and do something great, and hopefully a little out of the ordinary. By taking part in this community-wide initiative, we hope to make Kingston (and the world) a slightly better place to live, work and play.

This week’s #ygkchallenge encourages you to:

Donate toilet paper to the TP the Town Campaign. Toilet Paper (TP) the Town is looking for the community to rally around the roll for a second year in a row. Last year over 48,000 rolls of toilet paper were collected on a single day for people in need in our community. This year the goal is 100,000 rolls of toilet paper by April 11, 2015, all to be distributed by the Partners in Mission Food Bank. This week, we challenge you to spare some squares for those in need. On April 11, members of the public can drop off their TP from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Walmart, Loblaw’s at the Kingston Centre, or Valu-Mart on Gore Rd. More information can found about TP the Town and early drop off locations on Facebook, or Twitter.

Join us in completing this week’s #ygkchallenge by liking it on Facebook and/or re-Tweeting it on Twitter. By liking and sharing, you’re not only committing to doing something great, but you’re also helping us spread the word and hopefully encouraging others to participate.

  • So the awesome (est?) part of this story is that the Food Bank in Sydenham benefited, too! So thank you, Partners in Mission Food Bank and Kingstonist! You made life a little bit better, a little bit easier for someone in need, simply by "going outside your comfort zone". Way to go!
