Tottenham resident, Eva Bradley, has started her latest fundraiser – Toonies for New Tecumseth – with the goal of raising $10,000 for the Tottenham Food Bank and S.H.I.F.T. in Alliston.

Eva has a long history of fundraising.

Over the years she has raised money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation and other causes.

She has raised money for the Lions Club, the Food Bank, and the animal shelter in Allison. She also raised money for Simcoe Manor to get a new bus, Matthews House Hospice, and Stevenson Memorial Hospital.

Over the years she has raised thousands of dollars.

Things slowed down during the COVID-19 pandemic, and with some health concerns, Ms. Bradley stopped her fundraising. However, she now wants to begin a new initiative.

“This will be my last one,” she explained. “I’m doing a fundraiser for the Food Bank in Tottenham, and S.H.I.F.T. in Alliston.”

She calls her new initiative, ‘Toonies for New Tecumseth.’

Mr. Bradley points out how much could be raised if every household in town donated just one Toonie.

She began the project on Feb. 1, with the help of her friend Chrystal Robertson. She will continue fundraising until Nov. 17, 2024, with hopes of raising $10,000.

There are already events planned to generate donations that you can be a part of.

On April 27, Toonies for New Tecumseth will be at the Tottenham Legion with a bake sale and raffle, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Eva and Chrystal will also be at the Beeton Honey Festival on May 25, and will have a booth set up.

You can also donate that extra toonie you have at the ‘Fill a Jar’ campaign. Several local businesses will have jars in their establishments where you can donate your toonie or extra change.

You can also donate via e-transfer, and an account has been set up at the CIBC in Tottenham.

The e-mail account is tooniesfortecumseth@gmail.com.

To learn more, follow the Toonies for Tecumseth Facebook page and to donate, reach out to Eva by phone at 905-936-4907 or 905-936-2002. Chrystal can be reached at 905-724-0051.
