10 Nov Merry Christmas 2023
For over 35 years, The Chilliwack Salvation Army and Chilliwack Community Service have worked together to provide local families with the joy of a Christmas Hamper during the holiday season. The Salvation Army provides the food for a Christmas morning breakfast and Christmas dinner with all the fixings, while Chilliwack Community Services provides the toys/gifts.
Together, we bring hope and joy to struggling families in our community, and this year, we are aiming to bless over 1500 families!
