The Editor:

The North Dundas Christmas Fund, in conjunction with the Winchester, Chesterville and Mountain Lions Clubs, the Royal Canadian Legion branch 108, schools and churches distribute Christmas hampers and snow suits to families and children in need.

Last year, the North Dundas Christmas Fund gave out over 200 new snow suits to children 13 and under and 250 food baskets in 2017 to families in our area. Food drives are organized through the schools and churches and financially supported by the Bank, industry, local service clubs and your private donations.

To meet this demand the group relies on your financial support.

If you can help, please make your cheque payable to the North Dundas Christmas Fund and mail it to Box 27, South Mountain, Ontario, K0E 1W0.

There will be volunteers canvasing for donation during the Parade of Lights in Winchester on December 2nd.

If you, or someone you know in North Dundas, is in need of a snowsuit or Christmas food basket, please call 613-989-3830 or 613-774-0188.

After many years of dedicated service to the Chesterville region, Ina Graafland has retired from the Christmas Fund. The Chesterville Lions Club has taken the task to distribute baskets and snow suits and they look forward to your continued support.
