CHRISTMAS HAMPERS WISH LIST 2017

DROP OFF DONATIONS AT Seniors Resource Centre, 721 Victoria Street weekdays between 9 am and 3 pm.  We really need non-perishable food donations in BY Friday December 15.  Cash or Grocery Store gift cards will be accepted after that date — charitable donation receipts are available upon request.  (Cash and Grocery Store gift cards will be used to purchase PERISHABLE items for hampers, such as potatoes, carrots, oranges, cheese.)

PLEASE NOTE:

  • while large packages may seem more economical, we cannot divide products into smaller packages.  Please consider serving sizes for single seniors.
  • we CANNOT accept:
    • personal gifts (e.g., puzzles, books) — BUT WILL ACCEPT new & unwrapped warm adult socks, toques, mitts, gloves and scarves.
    • scented products of any kind
    • candles of any kind
    • home baking or home preserves

THANK YOU for remembering that many of our hamper recipients are managing chronic health problems such as Diabetes, heart and kidney disease.  By donating healthier foods you are helping PGCOS support hamper recipients to achieve and maintain better health!
