The 25th annual Christmas Gift Program is well underway at the Flin Flon Aboriginal Friendship Centre. It’s designed to enable parents or guardians to give their children a gift at Christmas when circumstances prevent them from doing so. The Centre’s Katie Kawerski says any family in Flin Flon, Creighton, Denare Beach, Cranberry Portage and Sherridon who is in need can register now to pick up gifts. She explains the registration dates started on December 2nd and the program will run from the 16th to the 20th so if you have a child between the ages of birth and 17 years you come down and you bring your health card and you can register your child. She adds you get a date that you can come down so the person that registered comes and they pick out a gift or gifts for their children and they get to wrap it right at the Friendship Centre so the kids don’t see the gifts.
They also welcome donations for the gift program at the Friendship Centre at 57 Church Street or you can take part in the Toy Drive at the Red Apple store tomorrow. For more information you can call Virginia at 204-687-3900.
