I want the children of Churchill, Manitoba to have a special Christmas and to know that Manitobans care about their situation. Christmas for Churchill is a toy, food and monetary drive. We need to fill Santa’s sleigh that is headed to Churchill. Let’s show how much Manitobans care!! I’m happy to be working in partnership with Oak Park's Social Justice Committe to make this a success!
We need donations of toys, food, and money (for gift cards so families can purchase perishable foods such as fruits/vegetables). There are about 200 students that attend school, plus 70 preschool children. My wish is for all the children to receive gifts, but I will be working closely with the Churchill Christmas Cheer to make sure the most needy children are provided for first.
Frontiers Northern has generously offered their charter planes for early deliveries. Gardewine.com has amazingly offered to transport donations to Thompson and have contacted Calm Air to carry to Churchill.
Currently our corporate sponsors are:
Motorland Enterprises, Deb Martens—Author and Consultant
Academy Lanes Bowling
