The Kitimat Food Bank is once again working to give a Merry Christmas to those who need it most. On Saturday, December 11th, Gareen Ball held her annual Christmas Radio Show to draw in donations for the Food Bank Hamper Drive. She went on the air with Santa Clause just before noon.
“We are down for Donations as well as applications. When you take 500 families out of here from Eurocan and even if 400 of them left, you can imagine what that will do to our Food Bank. It will make a difference in what we get from the schools,” said Margery Phelps.
She said if 250 children left the school system, it would make 250 donations which the food bank would not have received. There have been 280 requests for Hampers as of Saturday. The food has been ordered.
Christmas Hampers will be dropped off on Saturday, December 18th starting from 10 am. People receiving the hampers will have to be home to receive it and a responsible adult will have to sign for it. If the hamper can not be received, it will be left at the Food Bank and have to be picked up.
