At the Sooke Christmas Bureau, our mandate is to provide a generous food hamper for those individuals and families who need some help over the Christmas season. To this end, we are very grateful to have support from our outstanding regional firefighters, the District of Sooke, CFAX Santas Anonymous and this community!
If you or someone you know needs assistance, we want to help. Application forms can be picked up and dropped off in Sooke at the Food Bank (2037 Sheilds Rd), Sooke Family Resource Society (100-6672 Wadams Way), or the Crisis Centre (2043 Church Road).
For families with children the Santas Anonymous application cut-off date is November 15th; also note, applications will close when capacity is reached. We want to make sure that no one is missed so we’re asking that application forms are filled out and returned as soon as possible.
Note: In addition to the above locations, downloadable forms can also be found at the Santas Anonymous website link.
Want to help? The Sooke Christmas Bureau needs volunteers to pack food on Saturday, December 21 and for hamper distribution on Sunday, December 22. The work demands standing, walking and carrying boxes.
If interested in volunteering, please email Cathy, Volunteer Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a voice mail message at 250 642.1534.
We hope to ensure everyone has a Merry Christmas 2019!
