Christmas is a time of year when people open their hearts to those who have little. On Friday, December 19th, The Kitimat Hamper Drive was in full swing packing hampers so people with little can still have a Merry Christmas as a good Christmas Day.
Volunteers were zipping around the Hamper Drive with shopping carts filling them with Christmas Goodies, organized by other volunteers.
The hampers contain items to help make Christmas special for families who need it, breakfast, lunch and a voucher to help them pick up their dinner.
“Just the nice things that many of us can afford and many also cannot,” said Marjorie Phelps.
221 hampers were packed up on Friday to be delivered Saturday. Phelps thanked the people who donated to the drive. She also thanked all of the volunteers who helped sort food, wrap gifts and helped out.
