Get from Giving today at the Women’s Resource Society

December 13 is the third annual Get from Giving event, which encourages residents to share a meal and use the opportunity to help others in need. 

Another way to help out this winter is by sponsoring a family for Christmas. The FSJWRS provides single parent families with help over the holidays, with the help of local businesses. 

A family is matched with a business, which then assists with the cost of dinner and gifts for the parent and children. Families applying for a Christmas hamper provide information on the ages, sizes, and likes and dislikes of the children, and the business has the option of shopping for the family itself or having the Women’s Resource Society do it on its behalf. 

Anyone interested in sponsoring a family of any size is encouraged to call 250-­787-­1121.
