2016 FLAGSTAFF CHRISTMAS SHARING & ADOPT A FAMILY PROGRAMS
Contact Phone #780-385-3976
The Flagstaff Food Bank will be coordinating the Christmas Sharing Program in Flagstaff.
This tradition involves the collection and distribution of gifts and food hampers for those less fortunate in Flagstaff.
As the “Adopt a Family Program” was such a great success in past years, we will be running this program once again. Anyone interested in adopting a family should call before Friday December 4th. We ask you limit your gift purchases to approximately $60 per adopted person. Leave all gifts unwrapped with some gift wrap included in your family’s gift bundle. We reserve the right to redistribute any excess purchases to other persons in need. If you decide to give clothing, be sure to include the “Gift Receipt” in case an exchange is necessary by the recipient. Gifts must be delivered to Community Press Building in Sedgewick at 4919 47th Street (main Street) in the back alley entrance December 5th to December 14th.
This year we will be running the program out of the Community Press Building in Sedgewick at 4919 47th Street (main Street) in the back alley entrance beginning Monday December 5th. Anyone wishing to volunteer his or her time should call to find out when your help will be most needed. We would appreciate receiving the donations of goods and/or cash from the public, from Monday December 5th to Wednesday December 14th, 10:00 am thru 4:00 pm weekdays, at the Community Press Building in Sedgewick. Monetary donations to the annual Christmas Sharing Program can be mailed to Flagstaff Christmas Sharing, Box 581, Killam, AB, T0B 2L0. Tax-deductible receipts will be issued to all individuals giving.
If you are aware of families in need living within Flagstaff, encourage them to phone to submit their names for a food hamper and/or gifts. All information will be handled with the strictest confidence. Applications forms are available at the Flagstaff Food Bank in Killam on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 11:00 to noon, Flagstaff Family and Community Services at 4809 49th Avenue, Killam or at your Town/Village Office during their office hours.
This program is focused on assisting those less fortunate, within Flagstaff County, during the holiday season. As in the past years, the success of this program is due to the generosity of Flagstaff residents who continue to show the true spirit of Christmas.
