Three local organizations are partnering up to distribute Christmas hampers to local residents this holiday season. The Kindersley Food Bank, The Salvation Army, and The West Central Crisis & Family Support Centre have teamed up to put together Christmas hampers with donated items. The hampers will include an assortment of items, such as: food that falls under Canada's Food Guide expectations, along with treats and children's gifts.
The Christmas hampers will be sent out to recipients within the Kindersley Food Bank's service area only, along with rural residents (Kindersley, Smiley, Coleville, Brock, Marengo, Flaxcombe, Alsask).
Please contact the Kindersley Food Bank to confirm area coverage.
Application forms are available at all three services, as well as at the Hamper distribution location, the former Cameron's Clothing Company at the Kindersley Mall. All applications are to be completed and returned no later than Wednesday, December 15th at 4:00 PM.
Pick up Day for the hampers is Tuesday, December 21, 2021 from 9:30 AM to Noon & from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM.
