The Chalmers Community Services Centre is looking to distribute 800-Christmas Gift Bags to the needy coming into their agency.
The campaign is still appealing to the community to put together bags – each containing a pair of warm gloves and socks, unwrapped boxes of chocolate or candy, containers of coffee, hot chocolate, or tea bags. They also require a variety of new toiletry items, including a regular size shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, shaving cream for men, a box of tampons or pads for women, deodorant, body wash and disposable razors.
There’s still time to put a gift bag together.
Donations are being excepted between 5:00PM and 8:00PM Wednesday and from 8:00AM til 2:00PM Friday. The deadline is Friday.
Bags can be dropped off at their facility at 40-Baker Street at the brown door on the south side. Christmas Gift Bags can be delivered in new, reusable shopping bags. They don’t need to be gift wrapped.
