Hamper campaign provides food for the holidays
Once again, we are preparing for the busy Christmas season, and many of you are thinking about the true spirit of giving. We are so grateful for the many friends who have given of themselves and their resources over the years to brighten and encourage the lives of others who find this time of year so difficult to manage.
As the holidays draw near, that spirit of giving has never been more important. The number of households in need of Christmas assistance continues to grow. Many more families in our community continue to be impacted by the current economic strain. We recognize the powerful impact of this campaign, not only on the people we directly assist but also on our local community
— in bringing people together to give hope to others!
This year's goal is $198,000, and it will directly support the provision of a Christmas Hamper to upwards of 3,300 households. Please give today and support your local community.
The Kingston Whig-standard has been an active partner with the Salvation Army for the past 30 years, and together we would like to kick off this year's Jerome Taylor Memorial/ Whig Standard Christmas Hampers of Hope Fund.
Every gift matters, and thanks to you, we can make the holidays a little brighter for so many in our community. We truly thank you for your continued support and wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday!
