Second Annual Scarecrows-A-Plenty: VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE SCARECROW TO SUPP...
Scarecrows are taking over Downtown Maple Ridge, and they're hungry for Food Bank donations! Get ready to see cute, funny, thrifty scarecrows popping up around the Downtown shopping district as local business owners show off their creative side.
From October 1st - 21st, the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association is repeating the promotion and we would like to invite you to participate.
Participating businesses will decorate a scarecrow, and collect donations for the Friends in Need Food Bank starting October 1 to 21st. Weather permitting, scarecrows will be placed outside the business, so they are visible to foot and car traffic.
Customers vote for their favourite scarecrow in Downtown Maple Ridge by making a donation to the food bank (non-perishable items or cash) and complete an entry ballot, listing name, phone number, and business name of their favourite scarecrow. The business with the most ballot nominations / Food Bank donations wins a prize! One of the voters will also win a prize! Please take a non-perishable food donation to the Friends in Need Food Bank or into any participating business.
This promotion is multifaceted, and intended to display the individuality of our small businesses by showcasing their creativity in a fun, festive community event. Supporting the Friends in Need Food Bank is an added benefit, as it will hopefully get customers thinking about families and individuals in need of support heading into the holiday season.
