For far too many families, it’s a choice between food or paying the bills. The need, unfortunately, continues to grow in Thunder Bay. Christmas Cheer, established in 1924, ensures for at least a week, they don’t have to make that tough decision.
Until December 18th, financial donations can be dropped off at the following locations: branches of Scotiabank, Christmas Cheer Office, Chronicle Journal and Shout Media.
Non perishable food items can be dropped off at Shout Media, branches of the Thunder Bay Public Library and Christmas Cheer office.
Cellular users can also text ‘cheer’ to 20222 to donate $10 or $20 to the campaign.
A food blitz will be held on Dec. 15 at the CLE Coliseum and pickup for the north ward will take place on Dec. 17 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. The south ward pick-up is Dec. 18 from 9 am. To 7 p.m.
