Welcome to the Christmas Run! We are in our 36th year and is Volunteer led. 100 % of proceeds go into the program to help people in our community. We will be receiving our special families list early December.
Some of the families we help are:
- Medically Challenged
- Medical Crisis
Often families in crisis or medical situations have special needs, and we try to help them have a little nicer Christmas, some of the needs we were asked for are:
- Tim Horton cards,
- Hospital parking fees card,
- Walmart cards,
- Grocery cards, they do not have the energy to cook,
- Chapters cards: days in a bed can be boring with out books or music.
Since our Families are all different, their needs are all different. The Christmas Run is posting a few needs that these families in critical situations require.
We do up some hospital care bags for the families to take to the hospital, this helps them when they are away from home, sitting in surgery waiting rooms or ICU waiting rooms, it includes:
- chap stick
- nail clippers
- polar fleece blanket: ” sleeping in a hospital chair can be hard enough”
- small magazine or book.
