Contribute to a brighter Christmas

After more than a quarter of a century of Christmas Challenges by the Haliburton County Home Builders Association, the need to help others continues with the pandemic.
In its 26 years, the Annual Christmas Challenge seeks the community’s support by donating toys and food for those that are in need this festive season.
From a Facebook post on the home builders page, it reads, “Let’s take a moment and remember what it was like to get that special gift on Christmas morning. Now those who can, need to reach down and lend a hand to those who make Christmas special to those who need that extra hand.”
The home builders ask anyone interested in donating to call their office at 705-457-6901 to arrange for a pick up of donations, so they can be delivered to “Christmas workshops” for distribution by the 4Cs Food Bank, who will add them to Christmas hampers to help with their distribution to Haliburton, Minden Community Food Bank the the Central Food Network based in Wilberforce. Then the volunteers will come and collect unwrapped toys, gift certificates or food items at residences and locations of work. Please, prepare the collection in advance of the pick up on Dec. 10. For more information call the home builders.
