The Christmas Gift Program run by the Flin Flon Friendship Center went well again this year. The program allows parents to give their children a gift at Christmas when circumstances prevent them from doing so. The Center’s Program Events Coordinator Jolene Gardiner says donations and gift pick up ran well. She explains the numbers were down a little bit this year compared to last year but they still had over 120 families come in and pick up gifts for a various amount of children so they did very well and it was well received. She adds they community was very generous and it is always a well received program so they always have lots of donations coming in which is great for the community.
This was the 24th year for the Christmas Gift Program.
