It is November, and there is another Discover Strathmore out!
In this video series, we take a deeper look at the organizations that make our town so great. It was fitting that this month's organization was the Wheatland County Food Bank as we are heading into our Christmas Hamper Days!
The team at 104.5 More Country will be accepting physical donations at the Strathmore Canadian Tire on November 26 and 27 for this year's toy and food drive, after a successful event in 2020 the team is hoping to top last year's total! The Christmas Hamper Society will also be hosting more drop-off locations on December 4.
Strathmore Canadian Tire owner, Michael Tourond is excited to get this campaign going again after last year’s amazing success.
“I'm definitely excited that we did this last year. We took advantage of the amazing generosity of all our customers that live here in Strathmore and were able to support one of our favourite causes, the Christmas Hamper Society. We really want to beat what we did last year.”
Tourond explained that last year, almost every customer that went through their tills in November donated at least $2.00 to the Hamper Society.
When you visit Canadian Tire this year, you can donate to the Christmas Hamper Society at the till or visit one of the many drop-off locations!
