LETTERS: Give the gift of time

During the upcoming Christmas season many of us look for gifts of a different kind.

During the upcoming Christmas season many of us look for gifts of a different kind.

All of us have stories related to cancer.  These stories are often related to family and friends and to ourselves.

This year the Penticton unit of the Canadian Cancer Society is inviting you to give the gift of time.

During the month of December we are going to be providing gift wrapping at Cherry Lane Mall from the 1st to the 24th. We’ll be wrapping presents by donation. We need your help to make this a huge success.

The time slots are in three or four hour shifts, please sign up for a shift that works best for you. If you have time to do more than one shift, we would love your help. As you can imagine, it takes hundreds of volunteers to make this program work.

Please call our office at 250-490-9681 and we will be glad to send you a link where you can choose a day and time suitable to your schedule. We can also sign you up for a shift.

Thanks again for joining the fight against cancer with the Canadian Cancer Society.
