Stepping up for kids mental health


North Renfrew Times associate editor Vance Gutzman stepped up to the plate – the pie plate, that is – to help raise funds for the Kids Help Phone last week. 

Gutzman volunteered to take a whipped cream pie in the face in exchange for donations to the Bank of Montreal’s annual fundraiser.

The event raised more than $1,000 for the children’s mental health hotline.
