Mulch Sales for 2019 Announced

Crime Stoppers Guelph Wellington (CSGW) has announced the results of its successful 2019 Spring Mulch Sale campaign.

The sales, held April 27, May 4 and May 11 in Guelph, Fergus and Mount Forest respectively, are key fundraisers for CSGW which allow them to pay tipster rewards and operate the program.

The Guelph sale, which returned to the city after a hiatus, netted $743.69 and host Andre Belisle of JL’s Home Hardware on Wellington Road has confirmed he will host the event again in 2020.

The Fergus sale, held at the Centre Wellington Sportsplex, was a resounding success, raising $2,711.20 and selling out of product by 10:30 a.m. The Fergus sale will return in 2020 at the same location.

Volunteers indicate the 2019 Fergus Mulch Sale was sold out of product.


The Mount Forest sale at Youngs Home Hardware on Main Street North, was not only successful, but tripled the amount raised from 2018.

The weather was perfect and the crowds were ready to garden and helped CSGW raise $1,279.90! A huge increase from the $400 plus and $300 plus raised in 2017 and 2018 respectively. Marty has stated he would be happy to have the 2020 sale at his store next spring.

The grand total of the Mulch Sale campaign is $4,734.79. Thank you to our customers who supported us, to our volunteers to donated their time and energy to this event, and especially to our hosts. We would not hold the Mulch Sales without a parking lot, and your support of these events ensure our program will continue to keep our communities safe.
