Skate with Santa coming Nov. 4
The holidays are fast approaching and The Jasper Community Team is ready to kick off Santas Anonymous. Each year, individuals, businesses and organizations come together allowing Jasperites to share the magic of the holiday season with neighbours and fellow community members who may not otherwise be able to take part. Santas Anonymous provides a special holiday dinner and gifts to over 60 local families per year. The Jasper Community Team aims to promote community connections, preserve participants’ integrity, empower individuals and families and maintain a non-judgmental approach to any programs and services it runs.
Jasperites can sign up for the Santas Anonymous program through Community Outreach Services. There, they are connected with an Outreach Worker who can provide free, confidential assistance with problem solving, goal setting and referral to any other local programs and services. Once a family is signed up, all information is kept completely confidential and numbered applications make their way to the program coordinator and number one Elf, myself.
You, your family, club, board or business can make a very real difference in a local family’s life this holiday season. Consider supporting Jasper’s local Santas Anonymous program as you get into the spirit of giving this year!
There are a variety of ways to get involved.
Cash, cheque, gift card and other donations can be dropped off at The Jasper Community Team office, 627 Patricia St., open Monday through Friday from 9am – 4:30pm. E-transfers can be sent to email@example.com. Call 780-852-6540 for more information.
Santas Anonymous runs several events each year to raise funds.
For more information on events please call Ann at 780-883-0334 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
