03 Nov Christmas in Chilliwack
The Chilliwack Salvation Army and Chilliwack Community Services have been partners in providing local families in Chilliwack with Christmas hampers since1987. The Salvation Army provides families with the food portion of the hamper and the Chilliwack Community Services provides the toy/gift portion for children up to 18 years old.
