Caledon Youth Leadership Program hosts successful charity car wash

Nothing gets your car dirtier than endless road trips with the kids over the summer break.

On Wednesday, August 14, 2019, between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., members of the the Caledon Youth Leadership Program held a car wash in the parking lot of the Bolton Home Depot located at 12760 Highway 50.

For a nominal donation of your choice, individuals got their car washed, with contributions going towards the Caledon OPP Youth Leadership Camp for the local kids to enjoy in the summer of 2020.

Thirty students attending local schools were selected to participate in this years' program. The youth are also collecting non-perishable food items, such as peanut butter, canned meat, juice, school snacks and diapers, which will be collected from several neighbourhoods in Bolton and Southfields, to be delivered to ! the Exchange for the families in need to enjoy.

We thank everyone for their support in helping our youth in becoming leaders in the community.

“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”

The cyclist was able to mount the bike again and continued travelling until he collided with a guard rail further down the road. The witness became concerned, as the male appeared to be injured, and dialed 911.
