For more than 30 years, Christmas Hampers have brightened the season for residents of Smtihers, Telkwa and Witset. Each year, SCSA Christmas Hampers provides food for a Christmas dinner as well as some canned and fresh foods to about 1000 people. We also give toys and books to all children 16 years of age and younger. Christmas Hampers depends on support from our community to volunteer, sponsor families and donate food, toys and money.
To apply to receive a Christmas Hamper, Smithers and Telkwa residents should go to the Smithers Community Services Association at the CN Station - 102-3815 Railway Ave, (office open 8:30 - 4:30, Mon - Fri, closed between 12-1 for lunch). Witset residents should go to the Band Council office to apply.
Applications will be accepted until Fri. Dec 13, 2019. Christmas Hampers will be delivered on Sat. Dec 21, 2019. Please be home between 10:30 - 2:00.
