North Dundas Christmas Fund News Release
Snow Suits and Christmas Food Baskets
As Christmas and cold weather loom in front of us, the North Dundas Christmas Fund is once again gathering funds to purchase snows suits for children aged 13 and under and Christmas Food Baskets for residents in need within the community. In 2016, 150 suits and 200 baskets were distributed.
“It requires generous hearts from a caring community to make these funds available” said Bob Weagant chair of the group. “Snow suits cost an average of $40 each and the cost of food never goes down so the need is real”.
Cheques can be mailed to: North Dundas Christmas Fund, Box 27, South Mountain, Ontario, K0E 1W0 or dropped off at The Bank of Nova Scotia in both South Mountain and Chesterville. The Scotia Bank partners the campaign with generous donations.
If you or someone you are aware of is in need of a hamper or snowsuit then please call either the House of Lazarus at 613-989-3838 or Community Food Share (the Food Bank) at 613-774-0188 to register for the program.
