TRURO – Doug Anthony is determined to make a difference in the lives of others, even those he doesn’t know.
The 77-year-old Crowes Mills resident will be spending the majority of February canvassing door-to-door in the Belmont area for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. He has been a volunteer captain for the foundation in that area since 2003 and since 2005 he and volunteers have fundraised more than $35,000 in that area. Anthony’s fundraising efforts alone have brought in more than $19,000 of that total since 2005.
“I enjoy getting out and seeing people and there are a lot of heart and stroke issues out there,” said Anthony.
There will be numerous door-to-door campaigns for the Heart and Stroke Foundation taking place throughout Nova Scotia in February. People are asked to give a donation, which will go towards research and programming for the foundation.
