It’s the time of year for giving and making a difference in someone else’s life. Community Connections Food Bank is seeking donations for their annual Christmas Hamper program.

Volunteers are busy putting together care packages for community members of all ages, from toys to kids, items to support families, and care packages for seniors in the community.

You can drop by their collection centre in the basement of the Revelstoke Legion to donate.

We stopped by the Christmas Hamper program to speak with director Patti Larson to find out what’s needed this year. Check out the interview with Patti here:

If you’re looking to donate, drop by the Hamper Depot in the basement of the Revelstoke Legion. Here are details on the items they are seeking.
