Christmas Hamper Appeal
The Kitimat Christmas Hamper Appeal for 2011 is well underway and time is going by quickly. A reminder to those requesting a hamper the deadline for your application is Thursday, December 8th - any application received after that date will go on a waiting list. This is to allow our team time to tally up numbers to see how many requests we have and the number of people we need to have gifts for, amount of food required etc. Application forms can be picked up at the Social Services Office, Salvation Army Thrift Store and the Food Bank on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please return completed forms to the Sally Ann Thrift Store and the Food Bank or mail to Box 20. Hampers will be delivered on Saturday, December 17th beginning at 10 a.m.
Gareen Ball will once again be hosting her Santa's Workshop outside Sight & Sound in the lower level Kitimat City Centre Mall on Saturday, December 10th, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. She will be having guest co-hosts and a visit from Santa. Everyone is welcome to come down, say hello and drop off a donation of cash, gifts and non-perishable food items.
Donations for Week 3 are as follows: Kitimat Presbyterian Church $150; M Nidd $50; M M Grant $100; Anonymous $300; Glacier Concrete $100; Anonymous $20; H Shea $50; D Oeste $50; A McLeod $10; R & A Ferguson $100; Anonymous $10 giving us a total to date of $1,215. Thank you all. We still have a long way to go to reach our total for 2010 of $36,825 but have no doubt this can be attained as Kitimat has always been so generous.
Donations can be dropped off at Thomas Cook Wings Travel Christmas Tree, Dairy Queen Christmas Tree or cash donations to Envision Credit Union or mailed to Box 20, V8C 2G6 with receipts issued for donations of $10 or more. Thank you to everyone who give so much of their time and efforts to make our Appeal the success it is every year. Thanks to all the media for their ongoing support and without whom we could not get our message across.
