Christmas Hope campaign kicks off in Lethbridge
LETHBRIDGE, AB – Local organizations have teamed up this holiday season for a great cause.
The Lethbridge Food Bank, Interfaith Food Bank, Salvation Army, Lethbridge Family Services Angel Tree and My City Care Shop of Wonders are teaming up for the Christmas Hope initiative, in its 13th year.
Each organization will be holding different events to collect food, toys and funds for families in need. The goal this year is to collect enough supplies to help 2,000 adults and 4,000 children.
“Last year, we were close to 2,000 households. We have no idea how many households will come out this year. We tend to see a lot of people who maybe don’t necessarily need help with food come forward at Christmas time because those extra expenses of having the gifts at Christmas is difficult for them,” said Danielle McIntyre with Interfaith Food Bank.
