Santa’s Anonymous

Submitted by Alder Flats, Buck Lake, Winfield and surrounding areas Santa’s Anonymous Committee

It is nearing the Christmas season and we are reminded that there are some families who do not have the resources to give their families a Christmas dinner or provide their children with a present under the Christmas tree. The members of the Santa’s Anonymous Committee try to make sure those in need in our area are provided with a turkey dinner and some presents for family members and a little help with staples for the winter season.

We have Christmas boxes in local stores where people can donate dry goods and unwrapped toys to be put in Christmas hampers and delivered to those in need just before Christmas. There are also donation tins for anyone who would like to make a monetary donation.

If you know of anyone in need in our area who might benefit from a little extra help please make a referral to Lois Gilbertson at 780-682-2388. Please call before December 10, 2013.

We thank you for considering to donate to this worthy cause and wish you all best wishes for the Christmas season.
