Kuu-us to host special event

People can come and chose a small trinket or gift for their loved ones on Wednesday, Dec. 19, at the Kuu-us centre on Johnston Road.

Kuu-us Crisis Centre has planned a special event for Wednesday, Dec. 19 where people are welcome to come and chose a small trinket or gift for their loved ones.

This event gives individuals with little to no money a chance to give a gift to a child, sibling or caregiver. Adults may come by between 12–2 p.m. to choose gifts and children can come between 2–4 p.m. Santa’s elves will be on hand to wrap presents.

Kuu-us is looking for donations of trinkets, candle holders, picture frames or other small treasures suitable for this event. Please drop off at the Kuu-us complex, at the corner of Johnston Road and Adelaide Street.

Kuu-us is also running its 14th annual Festival of Trees. Ten trees have been sponsored; each tree has a plaque to acknowledge the contributions of donors, including businesses, individuals and agencies that have decorated their respective trees.

These trees will be delivered to sponsored families on Dec. 16, with assistance from the helper elves at Budget Car and Truck.

Safeway has collected  200 pounds of food and provided $300 worth of gift cards as well.
