Christmas Hamper program still in need of more donations
The Christmas Hamper program is more than half way through collecting donations for this year.
Every holiday season, the hampers provide food for a Christmas dinner as well as some canned and fresh foods for residents in the area that would might go without otherwise. The hampers also include toys for kids.
Coordinator Dawn Hanson says they are still looking for a few more items.
“At this point, we are always in need for toys for teens,” she says. “It is always a bit hard to buy gifts for that age group.”
She adds they also need peanut butter and Christmas treats.
Hanson would like donations to be dropped off by mid-week so they can be packed before they are handed out on the 20th. Donations can be dropped off in the old Marks building at the corner of Fourth and Main.
