Over 35-thousand pounds of food arrived at the CJWW Denny Carr Secret Santa warehouse yesterday (Mon), so now it's time to divide everything up into 800 hampers.
Every year, the Secret Santa Foundation gathers toy and cash donations and buys food for 800 families at Christmas. Executive Director Nicole Semko says 800 families means 3-thousand individuals and 2-thousand of those are children. The food in the hamper is enough for a Christmas meal and groceries for a week. Tonight (Tues) is hamper night with around 100 volunteers helping to fill the hampers at the warehouse. You can help with a cash donation or a new, unwrapped toy. The link to donate online is with this story on saskNOW dot c-a, as is the list of drop-off locations for toys.
