2) Santa’s Sleigh
WHEN: November 25 – December 16, 2016 9am-3pm
The Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Foundation in conjunction with the Peterborough & Kawarthas Association of Realtors (PKAR) is proud to once again host their annual gift collection program – Santa’s Sleigh. This will be the 28th year of this meaningful program designed to fulfil a Christmas wish for children receiving services from the Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society.
This year beginning at noon on Thursday, November 24th until 3 PM on Friday, December 16th at Walmart on Chemong Road in Peterborough, we are inviting the community to choose a child’s name and make a purchase in order to fulfill their Christmas wish. This gift will go directly to that child in the community so that we, and you, can put a smile on this child’s face on Christmas morning. If you would like to make a monetary donation but are unable to do so in person, you can do so online safely and securely by clicking HERE.
Proudly sponsored by 101.5 THE WOLF, CHEXSave Peterborough and 100.5 FRESH Radio.
