Every year the Sooke Christmas Bureau calls upon this community to help provide a traditional dinner with all the trimmings for the less fortunate in our district. The Christmas Bureau, which is an extension of the Sooke Food Bank, is asking for your help with the 2015 campaign. With food bank usage in this community up 20% from last year the Christmas Bureau expects an increased need as well.[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]Our community is fortunate to have support from CFAX Santa’s Anonymous with their mandate to help families with children in need receive toys and food. The Sooke Christmas Bureau is also grateful for a generous grant from the District of Sooke in the amount of $7,000 which will provide turkeys for many hampers. And of course, without the hard work of the firefighters in this region the Christmas Bureau program would not exist! This year their food run is on December 12th from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Watch for their lighted trucks and check out their location on live feed at sooke.ca.
You can donate in a variety of ways; there are collection boxes around Sooke, the firefighters will soon be collecting in front of Sooke retailers or you can mail cheques to: Sooke Christmas Bureau P.O Box 983 Sooke, BC V9Z 1H9
Thank You Again SOOKE for your support and for looking out for each other!
