Notice: Postponement of SWOX 3rd Annual Winter Walk for Warmth


2/10/2021 1:42:45 PM

On behalf of the Township’s Engage and Inform Committee, we wish to advise that the 3rd Annual Winter Walk for Warmth will be postponed this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We hope to schedule a new date in the future when it is safe to gather again. We thank all members of the community for their understanding, and their continued efforts to follow physical distancing and gathering restrictions currently in place.

There are many trails in Oxford County that we encourage our residents to explore for exercise and fresh air. With the current stay-at-home order in place, you are permitted to leave your home for exercise and may gather with no more than four (4) people that you do not live with, so long as you maintain a physical distance of 2 metres. A face covering is recommended outdoors, if physical distancing cannot be maintained, with members outside of your own household.

The purpose of the Township’s Winter Walk for Warmth is to raise awareness within the community about homelessness in our own neighbourhoods. There are many charitable organizations within Oxford County that do all they can to assist those in need of shelter, food and warmth. If you can, please consider supporting one of our local organizations with a monetary donation.
