Well, now that Halloween is over it is time to start thinking about Christmas. For the food bank that means the food drive and preparing Christmas hampers. We have begun registration. The good folk at the First Muskoka Church have graciously offered their fellowship hall again. The school has scheduled the date for their Christmas assembly for December 15. So, the date and time are set. Now we need you! Last year we gave out over $10,000 in gift cards to about 75 families. From this years stats, indications are that we will have considerably more families to serve. If you are able to help in any way we sure would appreciate it. Each year is a journey of faith to meet our targets. So far we have never been disappointed. Do your part to make this the best Christmas yet.
You can donate through the PayPal button on our web site or by sending a cheque to the West Muskoka Food Bank, Box 463, Bala, ON, P0C 1A0. Food items are also very much appreciated. They can be dropped off at Foodland in Port Carling, Freshmart in Bala, or at the Bala Post Office.
