Smile Cookies help Hamper Fund

The Knights of Columbus would like to thank the community and local Tim Horton’s locations

The Knights of Columbus have received their cheque from this year’s annual Smile Cookie sales at Tim Horton’s and are putting that money to good use – helping drive their Community Christmas Hamper Fund efforts.

Kevin Geary from the Knights of Columbus says they are thankful to the three Campbell River Tim Horton’s locations for putting on the Smile Cookie endeavour each year, :and the members of the Campbell River community who purchased the Smile Cookies.”

The Knights would also like to remind the community that the office for the 44th edition of the Community Christmas Hamper Fund is in a new location – 1414 Ironwood Street in the Campbell River Common next to the UPS store.

The office will be open from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday through to the end of the month. Commencing Dec. 1 until Saturday, Dec. 9, the depot will be open from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday.

In the week before Hamper Delivery, Saturday, Dec. 16, the office will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Donations of non-perishable food, toys and money may be given at any time on the above listed dates when the office 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 2018.

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 Saturday, Dec. 16. The community “drives” the Hamper Fund is a true statement in every sense of the word.

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, Dec. 5.
