This Friday, Nov. 30 is the final day for people in need to apply for a Christmas hamper from the Salvation Army Food Bank, says Cpt. Claudine Kadonaga. Late registrations will be accepted for a Christmas hamper for one day on Monday, Dec. 3 from 9 a.m. until noon in the Salvation Army soup kitchen at 272 Borland Street.

Applicants need to bring proof of address, income and expense statements, and identification for all members of household, Kadonaga says.

People who would like to adopt a family in need this Christmas with a donation can call the Salvation Army at 250-392-2423 and leave their name and contact information.

“The Adopt-A-Family coordinator will  phone you to determine the size of family you wish to sponsor and provide you with any needed particulars,” Kadonaga says.

A sponsor will pay for the family’s generic Christmas hamper ($80-$125) that will be put together by the food bank, plus purchase treats and gifts.
