Details:  This December 4 to 22, residents are invited to bring a new, unwrapped toy or non-perishable food donation to Iroquois Park Sports Centre (IPSC), as part of the Town's annual Stuff-A-Bug Toy and Food Drive for local families in need. Each year, the Town partners with local Volkswagen dealer Owasco to collect new, unwrapped toys that are 'stuffed' through the open sunroof of a holiday-themed Volkswagon Beetle (Bug). All donations collected are distributed locally through the Salvation Army to less fortunate children and their families. This year, the Bug will be part of the Whitby Tree Lighting on December 1 and make its way through Downtown Whitby as part of the Santa Claus Parade on December 2, before being parked in its' final destination at IPSC on December 4. The Bug will remain in the lobby of IPSC to accept donations until December 22.
