CHRISTMAS BAGS Nov 29, 2018
Chalmers Community Services Centre
Chalmers Community Services Centre

Each year we enjoy donating enough contents to complete 10 gift bags for Chalmers Community Services Centre's Christmas Gift Bag Campaign.  This year is no different!

With a goal of collecting 800 gift bags filled with basic items for people in need, the charitable organization received an unprecedented response, taking in 831 gift bags in 2017 — almost 200 more than were received in 2016.

We'll use this meeting to sort all of the donated goods and assemble the gift bags, so that they can be delivered to Chalmers.
