Finish line in sight for Hamper Fund

Knights of Columbus Christmas Hampers will be delivered this Saturday.

Volunteers from the community are once again needed to build the hampers and then deliver them to homes in Campbell River.

People who have volunteered over the years will attest to the fact that it is a very positive and enjoyable experience and is a wonderful way to start the Christmas season. The work will start at 8 a.m. until all the hampers are delivered by mid-afternoon. Anyone who would like to volunteer for the effort on Saturday is encouraged to come to the depot at 1100 Homewood Road in behind Perks Restaurant.

Some help is also needed this Friday afternoon, starting at 3 p.m. to help build the first 200 hampers. This gives a head start for the Saturday morning.

Donations of money, food or toys are also still being gratefully accepted at the depot, which is open every day this week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
