Hamper fund gets more than 1,000 applications for hampers

Hamper drive is in the final stretch

The Knights of Columbus Christmas Hamper Fund is in the final stretch.

There have been 1,087 applications for hampers received and processed. There are also “late” applications whereby people who did not register on time might receive a hamper should there be groceries remaining. The difference is that these folks will have to come and get their hampers on the Sunday after delivery day if they get a phone call from the hamper depot.

Meanwhile, the Daybreak Rotary Club is the latest contributor to the Hamper drive, donating $1,000.
