**THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO HAVE ALREADY DONATED**

***VOLUNTEER OPPS FOR CHRISTMAS BASKET ASSEMBLY & DELIVERY**

IMG_0707DECEMBER 15TH Noonish – SORT DONATIONS

DECEMBER 16TH – 7:30 A.M. – LET THE FUN BEGIN!!  Assemble all baskets first. When they are complete, deliver baskets.

Deliver: drivers needed to deliver the baskets. Drivers need to partner with someone; no one goes solo. We will find you someone on delivery day if you don’t have a partner.

Clean up: starts as soon as all the baskets have left the lodge hall.  Those interested and available please come to the lodge on the dates/times listed above. Thank you. Johnny M.

************************************************************************

CHRISTMAS BASKETS provided through your generous donations, items to prepare a traditional ham or turkey dinner and toys for 50-70 families.

Collection boxes for non-perishable items will be in place Thanksgiving weekend outside the social quarters. Monetary donations in the form of cash or check can be made at any time. Make checks payable to Ballard Elks, and note Christmas Baskets on the check. Leave checks and cash with the bartender on duty or mail/deliver to the office.

Ballard Elks provides through your generous monetary donations the fresh items including: turkeys/hams/fruit/vegetables/butter etc. In order to ensure that each basket has the same basic items, this year we will use funds donated to purchase the basic non-perishable goods that make up the meal.  Items remaining from this program will be donated to the Ballard Food Bank on December 16th after all baskets have been confirmed delivered. THANK YOU!!!
