The Salvation Army gave out over 800 hampers to the less fortunate Thursday morning at the Penticton Trade and Convention Centre. The more than 80 volunteers packed the boxes with everything from toys to turkeys for the long line of people who waited patiently for their turn. Those who received the hampers were assisted with their groceries to their vehicles and volunteers also drove others without transportation to their homes.
