At this time of year, we enjoy time with family, friends and loved ones, but not everyone is equally fortunate. We are reminded that others do not have even the basics. As the submissions come in and the stories are shared, we realize how much help is needed right here in the Okanagan.
Last year Kelowna Santas filled the needs of over 1,400 children age 0 - 17 years of age. The most difficult ages to collect for are the 11 - 17 year olds. They often tell mom or dad that they are ok, they don’t need anything for Christmas. The stories would break your heart.
If you are having trouble finding the time or deciding what to purchase for Kelowna Santas, please feel free to donate here and we will fill the gap in any giving need.
Wishing you and yours the merriest Christmas possible,
Love from the team at KelownaNow
