CLOVERDALE – With the season of giving now underway, Surrey residents are being asked to help support the longstanding Cloverdale Christmas Hamper Program, benefitting needy families.
Aside from the standard non-perishable food items that are always needed (canned veg and fruit, soup, crackers, snacks, canned meat etc.) personal care items, toiletries and gloves and socks are also in-demand. Children’s toys (for those 12 and under) are also much appreciated, as are gift cards.
Started as a partnership between local businesses, District 4 RCMP and the local fire hall, the event is an annual tradition in Cloverdale. This year, it will be held at the Save-On Foods located at the Hillcrest Village Shopping Centre.
The Cloverdale Christmas Hamper food drive will run from 1 to 7 p.m. Friday (Dec. 5) at the Save-On Foods store located at 18710 Fraser Hwy., Surrey.
