Claire Rosehill thanks everyone in the community who made donations to the Olds & District Christmas Angels Society or who volunteered their time during the lead up to the 2019 holiday season.
The Olds & District Christmas Angels Society expected a lot of need in the community in 2019 and that proved to be true.
Claire Rosehill with Christmas Angels says they provided over 200 hampers which helped over 600 individuals.
Rosehill adds, the breakdown of the families assisted included even more kids than usual this Christmas.
She recaps how the annual "Stuff The Bus" event went at the Canadian Tire location in Olds on December 14th.
Rosehill notes donations of toys were pretty good this year, but their cash contributions were down by almost half when compared to 2018.
She says they have discussed doing some sort of fundraiser in order to set up their bank account for Christmas 2020.
Financial contributions can be made to the Olds Christmas Angels anytime of year by calling the Angel Hotline at 403-415-9627.
