Want to help the Sooke Christmas Bureau provide families with a special Christmas this year?

Volunteers are needed at the Sooke Community Hall to help sort donated food items into categories on Dec. 18. On Dec. 19 they pack all the food into hampers and on Dec. 20 they hand out the hampers.

The Sooke Christmas Bureau is still accepting food donations in community donation boxes.

Cash and cheques are being accepted until Dec. 31 and can be mailed to P.O. Box 983, Sooke, B.C. V9Z 1H9.
