Make A Real Change In Someone’s Life
The Covid-19 pandemic presented many new challenges to the Program and much was learned during the 2022/23 season which is being applied to the current season. While the local community came through with generous donations, the Program’s fund-raising activities had to be curtailed and are only just now being re-introduced in 2023/2024 season. As well, there was a decrease in the number of families sponsored by individuals and businesses.
The cost of food and housing is also higher than pre-pandemic levels so the need for additional assistance at Christmas time remains high.
