Airdrie Area Residents Donated Generously Over Christmas Season
It was a very Merry Christmas for over 250 families that would have not have had a Christmas at all if not for the generosity of so many Airdrie residents willing to reach out with donations.
On behalf of the Airdrie Lioness, Stephen’s Backpacks, The Airdrie Food Bank and Community Links, we want to say “thank you” for your generosity and compassion. And, to the many volunteers that worked tirelessly to bring it all together, we hope you know how much your dedication and sacrifice of time is appreciated by not only the recipients, but of your community.
As we reflect over the past year, we take time to acknowledge all of the wonderful volunteers, sponsors and donors of various
community events and organizations. And upon those reflections, we come to realize what a wonderful community we live in.
Thank You All!!
The Airdrie Lioness received a tremendous amount of support from collections received from toy and food drives such as those organized by In Hot Water Spas, RJ Hawkey School, Secret Santa and many others as well as individuals, families and businesses that adopted a family Christmas hamper. The temporary warehouse was busy with volunteers as it all had to be sorted through and prepared for delivery.
The CMSD Breakfast Club was only one of many organizations and businesses that decided to forego gifts in favour of adopting a family and collecting for Airdrie Lioness Christmas Hampers.
