Come on down the Tribune’s 16th annual Food and Toy Drive

Our doors are open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Looking for a way to give back this holiday season?

Come on down to the Williams Lake Tribune’s 16th annual Food and Toy Drive today (Saturday), Dec. 1.

From 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. donations for the Salvation Army will be accepted at the Tribune’s office at 188 First Ave. North.

“We invite all our loyal readers to come down with non-perishable food items or a great new toy for a girl or a boy for Christmas!” said Tribune publisher Kathy McLean. “Don’t forget the teenagers as well when you are picking out a gift. The Salvation Army will be here with their loading van and our goal this year is to fill it to the roof.”

McLean said the food and toy drive is extra special as many of the Tribune’s incredible clients generously donate gift cards and gift certificates that are hand-picked off of the Tribune’s Christmas tree as a thank you for donating food and toys to the Salvation Army this holiday season.

Salvation Army executive director Dawn Butt said the food bank is in need of canned ham, tuna and salmon, pasta sauces, canned vegetables and fruit, jams, juices, Ramen noodles and side dishes.

McLean reminded everyone the downtown businesses will be busy on Saturday celebrating the Winter Lights Festival with family fun festivities happening from 10 a.m. until 7:30 p.m., with the parade at 5 p.m.

“We look forward to seeing many familiar faces and some new ones,” McLean said. “Williams Lake citizens are truly the best and we have proof every year at this time. Please come and help those that are less fortunate and together we can make someone’s life a little brighter.”
