Volunteers are needed to help assemble and deliver the Christmas Hampers for the Knights of Columbus. The hampers will be assembled and delivered from the former Target store in Discovery Harbour Shopping Centre on Saturday.

Campbell River’s Christmas Hamper delivery date approaches

The Knights of Columbus are thanking the community for its response to the needs of the Community Christmas Hamper Fund.

Various organizations, clubs and schools as well as individual members of the community have been to the depot bringing food, toys and money to help them achieve their goal. This year there will be 1,138 hampers assembled and delivered.

As of Friday, Dec. 8 the fund had reached 71 per cent of the money required to pay for the food that has been purchased to augment that which has been brought into the depot. Time is running short as there are only a few days left until hamper delivery. The Knights say it bears repeating that absolutely 100 per cent of the money donated is used to purchase the additional food required. No money is spent on toys or gifts for seniors as the community generously fulfills the need in that area.

There are still a few days left to make a donation to allow them to meet their obligations. Their donation drop off is located in the Campbell River Common Mall and is open daily, Monday to Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The phone number is 250-914-3716.

The delivery date for the hampers is this Saturday, Dec. 16 and the Knights are once again ask for physical help in assembling the hampers and then in their delivery. While some help is required on Friday afternoon at 2 p.m. for building hampers in order to get a head start, the majority of the volunteer effort is required for Saturday morning beginning at 8 a.m. until all is done. Note that the delivery and assembling of the hampers is done from the former Target store in the Discovery Harbour Shopping Centre. The attached picture shows more information.
