Hintonburg & Wellington Village


As we approach the holidays, our minds turn more and more toward giving. But there are more than one kinds of giving, and more than one way to give. For the month of November, the stores, services, and restaurants of Wellington West are celebrating three kinds of giving.

November 1-11: people who give

Drawing contest: 

  1. PARENTS: check the back cover of the latest Kitchissippi Times;
    or Print the downloadable PDF.
  2. KIDS: Draw a picture of someone you know who really GIVES to our community.
  3. PARENTS: Share your child’s picture on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with the hashtag #WelliWestGIVE
  4. We’ll make a draw from all the entries on November 12th for three $25 Gift Certificates from your choice of any business in Wellington West. You can choose what to do with them, but it would be lovely to hear that you gave them to the person you drew a picture of!
