KAMLOOPS — With the big day fast approaching, Christmas Amalgamated is still working harder than Santa’s elves to make sure everyone in Kamloops has a happy Christmas.

Sally Whitson, Coordinator for Christmas Amalgamated says many of the family hampers were delivered on the weekend, but there are still plenty of donations rolling through their doors at the Fortune Shopping Centre.

According to Whitson “We still have to pay for the damage we’ve done already. Certainly, with the hampers we have yet to build, we will continue to need the groceries.”

Whitson says there are still some items they could use to help round out the hampers the have yet to build before Wednesday and Thursday, but also says the people if Kamloops have an uncanny way of stepping up to fill those needs.
