Sooke Christmas Bureau needs your help

Local Sooke charity needs volunteers with time to donate

Once again our community will come forward and make Christmas much happier for many families from Saseenos, Sooke and East Sooke to Port Renfrew who are in need of assistance from the Sooke Christmas Bureau.

This year C-FAX Santa’s Anonymous has extended their assistance to our area as they have recognized the plight of the Sooke Christmas Bureau.  Not only will Santa’s Anonymous be supplying food hampers, but, also toys to approximately 200 area families with children from Saseenos, Sooke and East Sooke  to Port Renfrew  –  single or childless families will receive food hampers from the Sooke Christmas Bureau. AND each family will receive a turkey or in the case of singles or childless families will each receive a ham from the Sooke Christmas bureau!

Also, Sooke Firefighters, East Sooke  Firefighters, Otter Point Firefighters and Shirley District are gearing up for the “Annual  Santa Run” throughout their Communities on Saturday December 13   from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. – Watch for those firetrucks cruising through your neighbourhood.

And, just in case you miss that event, Sooke Firefighters are sponsoring a drive thru at the Sooke Fire Hall. Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.  Help fill a fire truck.

Volunteers can you spare a couple of hours to help sort food for hampers on Friday, December 19 from 9:30 a.m. Or Saturday December  20 to help pack hampers from 9:30 a.m. Or Sunday December 21 to assist with distribution of hampers.  If so, Please contact Sooke Christmas Bureau at 250 642-1534. All volunteers must be 14 years of age or older.

Lastly, but most importantly, please assist the Sooke Christmas Bureau with donations of cash at any of the 30 donation boxes located in local businesses or non-perishable foods in the boxes located within our community.

Sooke is a very caring Community and we all want everyone to have a very Merry Christmas!!
