Folks on Leuty & Violet Avenues raise flags, funds & food for Daily Bread Food Bank

FLAGS1  Again this year residents of Leuty and Violet Avenues in the Beach are auctioning flags to raise money for the Daily Bread Food Bank.  Dozens of families are working on the project.  Running every day until Dec. 25, one house on Queen Street and two dozen on Leuty and Violet Avenues will fly a holiday flag.  Inspired by Advent calendars and ranging from abstracts to landscapes, the art flags will then be auctioned off to the highest bidder on this website – http://www.dailyflagfordailybread.wordpress.com

A brilliant holiday idea from Leuty and Violet Avenues in The Beach

LEUTY1A daily flag for the Daily Bread is a community-inspired art installation from the folks who live on Leuty and Violet Avenues in The Beach neighbourhood.  The objective: to raise money for the Daily Bread Food Bank by auctioning off each of the flags to the highest bidder.  <FLAG ABOVE – Santa heads back to the Leuty Lifeguard Station from the Islands, by Don, Jane, Mia and Aidan>
