Foster parents association responds to Hamper Fund’s need

Foster parents association responds to Hamper Fund’s need: Youngsters connected with the Campbell River Foster Parent Association unload a truckload of gifts at the Knights of Columbus Hamper Fund depot at Tyee Plaza. The toys are surplus from the Campbell River Foster Parent Association’s seventh annual Kids Only Christmas for children in the care of the Ministry of Children and Family Development. This event provides an opportunity for children and teens to select gifts for members of their biological families as well as their foster families. In addition, they also collect non-perishable food items for the food bank. After reading in the Mirror that the Knights of Columbus were in dire need, the association immediately wanted to pay it forward and it was quickly agreed that the remaining new toys should be brought to the Hamper Fund. - Alistair Taylor/the Mirror
