CHRISTMAS FOR THE ALPHA HOUSING CLIENTS
Every year we do our best to provide small gifts for our housed clients at Christmas time. At any given time the housing program has over 220 active individuals in the program! We will be having a client Christmas party on December 13th at the Bridgeland Community Centre when these gifts wiill be distributed.
Additionally we will be having Christmas dinners at all the buildings to celebrate as well! If anyone is interested in assisting with any of these ventures please contact Allison at 403-404-5535 or email@example.com
We are hoping that Alpha House staff and volunteers will be able to assist with gifts this year! Thus we are asking, if possible, if you would like to purchase a small gift (about $10 value) for a housing client to give away! If this is something you are interested in please leave the gift in the housing office or with the team lead in the shelter.
Thanks very much! If we all pitch in a little bit we can ensure that all of our clients have a great Christmas and holiday season this year!
Thanks and take care
Your generosity is appreciated.
