Donations & Decorations

Posted by Derek Mann on 2018/12/14

With just a little over a week until Christmas, I’m cramming as much holiday spirit and fun as I can into the weekend!

I’ll be starting my weekend off at the Blood Donor Clinic in Oshawa on Saturday! They are looking for over one hundred donors before the new year. They are open from 8:00AM-2:00PM on Saturday so you can come out and make your donation, try to book your spot in advance at

I’ll be heading to the Scugog Memorial Public Library in Port Perry afterwards to check out their awesome Gingerbread Village. You can check it out anytime during regular hours, it’s definitely something you don’t want to miss! They have over eighty gingerbread house creations, you’ll habe to see it to believe it!

You can find me at the Ajax Public Library on Saturday afternoon. The Rotary Club is hosting a Hockey Equipment Drive from 12:00PM-4:00PM. Bring any gently used hockey equipment or winter clothing for all ages for donation. Everything that is donated will be transported to remote First Nations communities for them to enjoy a healthy and fun winter activity!

I’ll be ending the day on Saturday with a Winsticker Drive Thru in Whitby! Keep your dial on KX96 to find out where you can get registered for your very own KX96 Winsticker!

I haven’t checked out the Guided Trail Hikes at Glen Rouge Campground in a while so I will be starting Sunday off there, it will be nice to see how things have changed since the leaves have fallen, there’s always amazing trail hikes to go on. Register to go on one this holiday season at

I will be heading to Bowmanville High School afterwards, the Concert to Feed the Need is happening! There are two show times you can check out! The first one is at 3:00PM, hosted by KX96’s very own Carolyn Ellis! The next is at 7:00PM, both shows have an amazing line up of local musicians putting on a spectacular show. Grab your tickets in advance at and help feed the need in Durham!

I will be ending my weekend with a Winsticker Drive Thru in Oshawa! I’ll be at the Oshawa Centre, so if you’re finishing up some Christmas shopping come and see me and get registered so you could be the next winner on Winsticker Wednesday!
