Christmas hamper box drive underway by fire department

The boxes will be collected prior to Christmas and a hamper will be distributed to a family in our area

The Watch Lake-North Green Lake Volunteer Fire Department (WLNGLVFD) members want to show their extra support to our community by starting Christmas Hamper donation boxes.

The boxes are at the 70 Mile General Store, 99 Mile Supermarket and the Little Horse Lodge. Any non-perishable food items, unwrapped gifts, toys, etc. are appreciated.

The boxes will be collected prior to Christmas and a hamper will be distributed to a family in our area. If you have anyone who may be deserving of a hamper, please place your suggestion in the donation box.

A huge thank you goes to the businesses that made room and allowed the fire department to have the donation boxes in their store.
