With Christmas being only six weeks away, The Salvation Army is now booking appointments for those requiring assistance from their annual Food and Toy Program.
In 2014, 500 families were provided with food to celebrate on Christmas Day, as well as toys/gifts for each child in the home 18 years of age and under.
“We could not provide this blessing without the tremendous support of the community,” says Pastor Darryl Burry, Executive Director for The Salvation Army in the Central Okanagan. “From financial donations to the donation of food product and new toys, each contribution helps us to provide hope and dignity to families’ right here in our community during the Christmas Season.”
For families (two or more in the same household) who will require assistance this Christmas season, The Salvation Army is currently scheduling appointments between November 16 and November 27th at their Community Life Centre located at 200 Rutland Rd. South.
“We desire to ensure that no one falls through the cracks during this special season of love and giving, however, in order to meet the demands placed upon us, we would respectfully ask that all families set up an appointment to register as soon as possible,” says Burry.
