Cogeco’s Pumpkin Patrol in Kingston Halloween Evening

Published on: 2021/10/31 - in Releases

RELEASE — Cogeco Connexion, a subsidiary of Cogeco Communications Inc. (TSX:CCA), is pleased to be rolling out our Pumpkin Patrol Program for the 8th consecutive year.

As Halloween approaches, community safety is always top of mind. At Cogeco, we are committed to our communities and recognize that one of the most precious assets in them are the children. That is why we are pleased to be continuing our Pumpkin Patrol Program to help keep children safe when they are ‘Trick or Treating’ in their neighbourhoods on Halloween night.

“At Cogeco, being involved in our local communities is at the heart of everything we do, whether it’s by hiring 100 percent local talent, investing in our networks, or patrolling the streets on Halloween,” said Matt Wickham, Vice President and General Manager, Ontario at Cogeco. “In partnering with local police services, our employees provide additional eyes to help protect our children while they enjoy Trick or Treating, making it a fun and safe evening for the children, as well as parents and caregivers.”

Look for Cogeco staff in your neighbourhood. We will be patrolling the streets in our branded white vans on Sunday, October 31, 2021 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm in areas where children are ‘Trick or Treating’. Parents and children are encouraged to reach out to them if, at any point, they may need assistance.
