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]
