Campbell River Tim Hortons donated $8

Hamper Fund location set

The depot for the 43rd edition of the Community Christmas Hamper Fund organized by the Knights of Columbus is situated at #330-1100 Homewood Road in behind Perks Restaurant.

Starting Tuesday, Nov. 15 until Wednesday, Nov. 30, the depot will be open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday.

Commencing Dec. 1 until delivery day on Saturday, Dec. 17, the depot will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. The phone number is 250-914-3716.

Donations of non-perishable food, toys and money may be given at any time on the above listed dates when the depot is open. As has always been the case, these donations are absolutely essential to the success of the effort. Income tax receipts for monetary donations will be issued in January 2017.

The Christmas Hamper effort relies heavily on the generosity and support of the entire community from start to finish. There will once again be a need for volunteers to build and deliver the hampers on December 17th. Those who have helped in the past know that it is a deeply rewarding experience.

The application forms for the hampers are available only at the Campbell River Employment & Income Assistance Office at 833A 14th Ave. The deadline for completion of an application is Tuesday, December 6th.
