Three Ways You Can Help Our The People Of Fort Saskatchewan This Christmas

When a lot of people think of the holiday season, they think of good times with presents, family, and a little cocoa to keep you warm. However, not everyone is so lucky. For some people, the holiday season is a reminder of what little they have and how much others have.

But what can you do to help? Here we’ve compiled three things that you can do or contribute to make the holiday season a little better for the Fort Saskatchewan community!

1) The Families First society! 

What is the Families First Society? It’s a charitable organization that serves families through early childhood development, parenting programs, and family support! The program helps parents and children play and learn together and provides helpful tools from experienced and knowledgable facilitators! Specifically, there is family support for those impacted by family violence, baby loss, or someone who may just need a shoulder to learn on over the holiday season!

But how can you help?

In two important ways: simply with your wallet. They accept donations that will enhance their programs and help your community. They also accept drop off of diapers, wipes, formula, and children’s clothing, household items, and more!

You can also give gifts to the toy run! Find out more here: HERE.

2) Donate to the Fort Saskatchewan food drive!

The Fort Saskatchewan Food Gatherers Society Mailing Address: P.O. Box 3404, Fort Saskatchewan, AB, T8L 2T3 Physical Address: 9803 – 102 Street, Fort Saskatchewan, AB, T8L 2C1 Food Bank Phone: 780-998-4099 Food Bank

Hours of Operation: Tuesday and Friday – 10:00am – Noon and 1:00pm – 3:00 pm

With the weak economy, now is a more important time than ever to donate to struggling charities who are trying to keep up with increasing demand. If you have spare food, please come down and donate!

3) Donate your time to be a Snow Angel. 

Snow Angels is a volunteer service program where individuals, organizations, businesses, classrooms, families, and groups of youth can commit to removing snow from the driveway and sidewalks of local resident in need throughout the winter months.
