The Haldimand County Disaster Relief Committee has created yet another way of helping Dunnville's recent flood victims, with a new campaign that starts today.

Working in cooperation with Dunnville's Canadian Tire, people are being asked to gather their Canadian Tire money and donate it at one of two dropoff boxes, which are located at The Dunnville Chronicle and the Chamber of Commerce.

Members of the Disaster Relief Committee will collect all the money and bring it to Canadian Tire, where manager Bill McConnell has agreed to exchange it, dollar for dollar, to donate to the relief fund.

Disaster Relief Committee member Donna Pitcher came up with the new campaign. Called 'Get Your Engines Running,' its intent is to help people recoup some of the damages they incurred due to severe flooding in February.

She invites all area service clubs and schools to get involved, in the hope they will engage in some healthy competition to see who can collect the most.

"They can set their own time frame for collecting the Canadian Tire money, and then call me for pick-up," Pitcher said, adding she can be reached at 905-701-1627.
