KELOWNA - The Salvation Army in the Central Okanagan is now accepting interview appointments for their Christmas Hamper program. Christmas Hampers are made available to low income families with children living at home under the age of 18.

In an effort to support clients more efficiently and effectively, The Salvation Army is scheduling appointments up until November 25th. Registration interviews will take place at The Salvation Army’s Community Life Centre located at 200 Rutland Road South.

To book a registration interview, please call 250-765-3450 and press option 4 Appointments are being booked for November 17th to November 25th (Monday to Friday).

"It is due to the generosity of our community, which makes it possible to keep this important program running each year. We could not serve those in our communities without the trust and support of our donors and volunteers. At this time of year we see hundreds of families turning to The Salvation Army for assistance and we are humbled to provide that helping hand again this Christmas season," shares Geri Grainger, Community Ministries Director.

The Salvation Army expects to assist more than 450 families this Christmas, including over 900 children here in the Central Okanagan. To book an appointment or to inquire about the Christmas Hamper program call us Monday to Friday 9am to 4pm at 250-765-3450 and press option 4.
