If you would like to make a donation for the sale please don’t hesitate to contact any of the G.C.A Executive for assistance or we do accept donations on the back veranda at the Community Hall which is located at 119 Darwin Street in Galetta. We do appreciate your support and donations however we do ask that your donated items be in good working order and not damaged beyond repair.

Do you enjoy baking? We always have a wide variety of bake goods for our Bake Sale. If you are interested in donating your delicious treats to our Bake Sale please contact Lana Dean (613) 623-0113 for more details!
