Canvassers raising funds for and awareness of Crime Stoppers may be knocking on your door over the coming weeks.
During June and July, reps from Crime Stoppers Simcoe-Dufferin-Muskoka 2011 will be asking for the public’s support to help the agency with its top mandate: stopping crime through anonymous tips. Canvassers will be wearing identification with their name and photo on it, along with the Crime Stopper logo and Blue Mountain marketing logo. They will also be handing out Crime Stopper literature.
The campaign is ongoing Sunday though Saturday, 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Residents unsure about the legitimacy of door-to-door fundraisers are reminded to contact Barrie Police at 705-725-7025.
