Knights’ Christmas hamper depot now open at the Tyee Plaza

Donations of non-perishable food, toys and money may be given at any time

The depot for the 41st edition of the Community Christmas Hamper Fund organized by the Knights of Columbus is situated in the Tyee Plaza between the former SuperValu store and Banners Restaurant.

Starting on Wednesday until Saturday, Nov. 29, the depot will be open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Commencing December 1st until delivery day on December 20th, the depot will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. The phone number at the depot is 250-286-6361.

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 2015.

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 Dec. 20. 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 833A 14th Ave. The deadline for completion of an application is Tuesday, Dec. 9.
