Victoria Manor Residents- Helping Hungry Families

Earlier this year, during a Resident’s Council meeting, Victoria Manor Residents decided they wanted to help Kawartha Lakes Food Source, an organization that helps stock many local food banks. During the month of August, Victoria Manor’s Life Enrichment team collected non-perishable food items and held a bake sale.
