Preparing to fill hampers with Christmas cheer

Hamper applications are available as of Nov. 14 and must be brought in to Cowichan Lake Community Services, in person, by Dec. 7.

Christmas Hampers are coming up fast and Cowichan Lake Community Services will be providing a wholesome arrangement of food and goodies to brighten your holiday season.

Hamper applications are available as of Nov. 14 and must be brought in to Cowichan Lake Community Services, in person, by Dec. 7.

You must be registered at Community Services by Dec. 7 or you may not receive a hamper on Wed. Dec. 19. Organizers say they would not want to see anyone get forgotten or missed.

Approximately 225 food hampers are assembled on Tuesday, Dec. 18 and distributed on Wednesday, Dec. 19.

Angel Trees are set up at Curves, Lake Cowichan Chiropractic, Palsson, A.B. Greenwell and LCSS.  Angel tags state ages and sex of the child in need of a gift.  A new, unwrapped toy is always appreciated and can also be dropped off at Community Services.

The Lake Cowichan Fire Department will be holding their fourth annual drive for gifts at Country Grocer on the weekend of  Dec. 7 and 8.

Volunteers are needed to assemble hampers and help with distribution, if you are available to help us with assembly on Dec. 18, at 9:30 a.m., please contact Cowichan Lake Community Services at 250-749-6822 or in person during business hours and ask to be put on the volunteer list.  Heavy lifting is involved.  No children please.

For more information contact Angie Fourneir at 250-749-6822.

The Lake Cowichan Food Bank does not distribute food hampers during the month of December.
