1st Annual Back to School Drive Thru event: Wednesday, September 1st from 5 pm to 7 pm
CMHA Grey Bruce in partnership with Heritage Place Mall in Owen Sound is hosting a Back to School Drive Thru event.
Typically, each year the youth awareness programs would welcome 100 families to Harrison Park for the Back to School Teddy Bear picnic, providing lots of games and entertainment for all who attend as well as access to information, resources and swag items.
This year, in place of that event, CMHA Grey Bruce is inviting families to a “drive-thru” event, in a reverse parade-style to collect valuable resource information and receive coupons and other free items to support the overall mental health and wellbeing of children, youth and families of Grey and Bruce counties.
The drive-thru lane will be ready for lining up at 5 pm (in the west lot beside Leon’s) and the “doors” will open for the reverse parade at 6 pm (the south lot behind Kelsey’s Restaurant) and run to 7 pm.
There will be resource information from more than 25 different local, provincial, and national resources including:
- Owen Sound and North Grey Union Public Library
- Kids Help Phone
- We Care Grey Bruce
- YMCA of Owen Sound
- Big Brothers Big Sisters
- Mind your Mind – Be Safe and Mood apps
- Daisy’s Clay House
- Boston Pizza
- Owen Sound Attack
- Jr. Optimists
- Home Depot
- Community Foundation
- Keystone Child Youth and Family Services
- Owen Sound Police Services
- RESP information
- And more!
