If you’re planning to attend the Santa Claus parade this year, bring along a few canned goods and non-perishable food items. Crews from the City of Saint John will be walking ahead of the parade on the 2.6 km route and collecting for local food banks.
For over 30 years, volunteers from Local 18, the City’s outside workforce have been participating.
“The Santa Claus parade is attended by thousands of people,” said Mike Meehan, president of Local 18. “If everyone who is able would donate just a few items, it would go a long way to helping those who need it in our community.”
