Letter: Salvation Army tries more intimate approach

New venue for hamper distribution this year in Penticton

As we at The Salvation Army prepare for the joyously busy task of providing Christmas hampers for needy individuals and families in the Penticton area, I would like to thank the Penticton City Council and the South Okanagan Events Centre for their kind support in providing a venue for our operations in past holiday seasons and for their very kind offer of assistance this year.

We decided to try a more intimate approach to hamper distribution this year by spreading the distribution over three days and using our church facility on South Main Street. We thank all of our donors and volunteers and anticipate a great Christmas for our friends who come for help this year.
