Santa’s Anonymous and Food Bank Drive

It’s that time of year again and boy did it go by fast. The drive is on for Santa’s Anonymous and Food Bank. All food items must be non-perishable (canned,dried, jarred, powdered, boxed, or bagged).

Families in need - if you know of a family in the Alder Flats, Buck Lake or Winfield areas that require assistance over the holiday season please contact Ms. Addario or Ms. Linde. Alternatively you can contact Lois Gilbertson at 780-682-2388 or 780-621-2448, or the Winfield Health Unit 780-682-4755.

The competition is on!

Each tag group has been assigned a playing cards (similar to a bingo card). Each card has 25 squares containing a product item. You will not see the card but the spaces will be filled weekly, so each group can see their progress. For the group that has the best (or most completed) cards, will have a choice of ice cream cake or pizza & pop. The goal is to try & complete all 13 cards – if a group does this then they will get both ice cream cake & pizza & pop.

Adopt-A-Family – if you or a group would like to adopt-a-family to provide a food hamper to a family please see Ms Lesley Addario or Ms Brenda Linde to be assigned an anonymous family. You will be provided the gender & age of each family member. You will be given a check list of what should be in each hamper, but this does not mean you need to provide all the items but as many as you can. Gifts are not a requirement, or if you do provide them they do not have to be wrapped.

We ask each & everyone to help our less fortunate community families to have a joyous & wonderful holiday season.

New members required – this maybe the last year for this drive as the coordinator Lois Gilbertson maybe leaving the area in the near future. If you are interested in taking on this very confidential program please contact Lois at 780-682-2388 or 780-621-2448.
