Annual RRU Adopt a Family Campaign


After a successful close to the RRU United Way Campaign, it is time once again to turn our thoughts and actions to less fortunate community members who could use a boost this holiday season.  The annual RRU Adopt a Family Campaign is kicking off in time to help bring some Christmas and holiday cheer to a few local families.  

Attached is a ‘hamper contents suggestion list’ and below is a listing of the families we’re to help and their wish lists.  Yes, families #3 and #4 do not appear as these families will be taken care of by the staff and members of CTET and the Recreation Centre.  Thank you, CTET and Rec Centre staff and members!

All items should be dropped off at the RRU Recreation Centre by December 19 (however, the earlier the better!) so we have time to wrap, potentially shop for missing items and arrange delivery of the hampers on Dec 22. 

If you have any questions please contact Shelley Langille (x 4119) or Patti Walsh (2700).
