Stores join TP the Town campaign

Saanich grocery stores throw support behind effort to benefit Mustard Seed Street Church

A pair of Saanich grocery stores are joining in a campaign to benefit the region’s homeless.

TP the Town Victoria is a one-day toilet paper drive organized by the Prodigy Group that benefits the Mustard Seed Street Church.  On Saturday, residents are encouraged to shop at participating Save-On-Foods and Country Grocer stores to purchase toilet paper and donate to the event.

“This is a unique event that brings awareness to the issues around homelessness and poverty in this city,” said Allan Lingwood, director of development of the Mustard Seed Street Church. “We’re extremely grateful to be included as the recipient for the donations for this drive. It will have a tremendous impact on our hampers as we head into the winter season.”

TP the Town Victoria runs Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at several locations including the Royal Oak Country Grocer at 4420 West Saanich Rd. and the Uptown Save-On-Foods at 3510 Blanshard St.
