A reminder to those requesting

a hamper: the deadline for

your application is tomorrow,

December 8 – 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

Offi ce, 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

Gareen Ball will once again

be hosting her Santa’s Workshop
