"There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up."
The Chilliwack Salvation Army anticipates 1700 hampers will be distributed and the problem is that currently, the shelves are bare. They are trying a new fundraising campaign, and the hope is that we can provide some extra assistance this year in getting those shelves filled. In addition, there will still be the Adopt-A-Family that will happen this year for another 250 families.
Clearly there is a lot of need in Chilliwack!
Hopefully, we can put our minds together and help get something organized to relieve the burden a bit.
