Even though it's just the beginning of December, the clock is ticking down for CJWW Denny Carr Secret Santa, with distribution of food hampers and toys for 800 families in need coming up the week before Christmas.
To fill up those hampers, 35-thousand pounds of non-perishable food is being delivered this morning (Mon) to the Secret Santa Foundation warehouse. Today is also the annual Advocis Wieners and Beans Luncheon at the Sheraton Cavalier in support of the Secret Santa Foundation. Executive Director of the Foundation, Nicole Semko, says serving this simple meal helps to put yourself in the shoes of someone less fortunate. Through CJWW Denny Carr Secret Santa, 800 families receive toys and food hampers with enough groceries to last a week. You can donate cash online through the Secret Santa Foundation website or you can donate toys at various locations in Saskatoon and area.
