Hamper campaign nears the one-third mark
It takes hundreds of people to make the campaign a success and it’s certainly true when it is said that every little bit helps.
In the case of the students from Tallack Martial Arts, it’s a big help in the form of their annual “Kids Helping Kids have Christmas’ 500 technique challenge to benefit the Jerome Taylor Memorial/WhigStandard hamper fund.
The students from Tallack Martial Arts have raised tens of thousands of dollars over the years and their efforts this year bolstered the campaign by $2,300. Thank you to Melanie Loxton, the students and all the good people at Tallack Martial Arts for helping make the event a success. The funds raised from this event have pushed us closer to the one-third mark in the $155,000 campaign.
Thank you to all of the supporters who sponsored a family. It’s a great help to the campaign that we have hundreds of people purchasing and delivering food hampers to recipient families. With only two weeks left in the campaign, we are now looking for volunteers to help with packing and deliveries on Dec. 20 and 21. Those interested can contact Michelle Kreps at 613-548-4411, ext. 129, or email christmasham[email protected]
