Community thanked for helping make Christmas bright

Agassiz-Harrison Community Services grateful to community for all of its support

On behalf of Agassiz-Harrison Community Services, I’d like to thank the residents of the District of Kent and Harrison Hot Springs for their generous donations to our food bank at the Christmas Train event in December. Some 230 households used the food bank in 2015 which included 93 new households, so the donations are very much needed.

We are grateful to the CPR for the great evening, for putting us on their list of stops and we appreciate their food bank cheque of $7000.00.

I’d also like to recognize the help and support of the Agassiz-Harrison Agricultural and Horticultural Association for making washrooms available to the public that evening. Thanks to the District of Kent for helping organize things and for the use of their trucks and to CUPE 458 members who acted as traffic controllers and food delivery people.  Tim Hortons helped keep the crowd warm with their free coffee and hot chocolate, and the Wildcat Grill had a food van on site. Star FM 98.3 and Country 107.1 were in attendance and we appreciate their support.

Thank you to everyone for making the evening a great success.

Bobbi Jacob

Executive Director
