Christmas hamper committee looking at program changes

For several years the Similkameen Christmas Hamper Fund has provided hampers and vouchers to many families and individuals in our area.


For several years the Similkameen Christmas Hamper Fund has provided hampers and vouchers to many families and individuals in our area.

We wish to continue this service but in a new and improved format. This change is a result of increased abuse of the program.

Approved recipients will receive a pre – determined hamper filled with a nutritious Christmas dinner suitable to the needs of each applicant.

All applications will be accepted at the Keremeos Information Centre on the following days from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Monday, November 26

Wednesday, November 28

Friday, November 30

The overwhelming success of the Christmas Hamper Fund has been due to the generosity and commitment of our donors and volunteers. Without you we would not have achieved our mandate. Thank you!

We hope you will support this change.
