Christmas Hamper Campaign
From food hampers to helping put toys and clothes under the tree; The Salvation Army is providing practical assistance to those in need this Christmas.
The Salvation Army Christmas Hamper program partners with community based organizations, groups and churches to ensure individuals and families throughout Penticton are supplied with the food needed to prepare a festive Christmas meal.
Throughout the month of November qualified individuals may complete an application at our Community and Family Services office at 2399 South Main Street.
Households who have children up to age 12 will be automatically entered into the Toy Drive. Youth ages 13 – 16 will receive a $25.00 gift card.
We cannot accomplish this enormous undertaking without the continued support of our Penticton volunteers. There are many areas volunteers can assist in, from sorting toys as they are brought to the distribution centre, setting up the “store”, assisting applicants and support in organizing for the distribution day. Please contact Family Services at 250-492- 4788 for more information to volunteer and share the Joy of Christmas.
