Many opportunities to help

There will be many opportunities this month to help those less fortunate in our community.

There will be many opportunities this month to help those less fortunate in our community.

One way people can help that is coming up tomorrow night is the 15th annual annual Yuletide Christmas Feast which is organized by volunteers and supported by local business.

The dinner will be served at the Ramada Convention Centre between 4 and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Individuals, community groups and businesses can help to support this event by sponsoring an individual or a family. The suggested donation is $10 for an individual plate of $40 for a family.

Receipts for tax purposes are available.

The dinner fed more than 600 people last year and more people are expected to attend this year, say organizers.

The Tribune applauds all efforts by the community to help those less fortunate this holiday season.

People can help in many ways by donating at the Salvation Army kettles now set up around the community or donating directly to the Salvation Army for the Christmas Cheer program.

People can also help by attending the Child Development Centre’s Christmas Wish Breakfast  coming up on Dec. 19 with the donation of a toy or food; attending the TubaJohn Christmas concert at St. Andrew’s United Church Dec. 12 at 7:30 p.m. with a donation for the food bank; bringing a donation to the Tribune’s food and toy drive on Saturday, Dec. 15 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; putting a present for a child in need under the RE/MAX upside down tree.

Many other businesses, community and church groups also have campaigns running to collect donations for families in need and we applaud them all and encourage people to donate as they are able to help people in need this holiday season.
