Don’t worry folks, this Check Stop is all about giving back to the community.

The Ponoka Fire Department is hosting its annual Charity Check Stop today (Nov. 23) at Highway 2A just north of the Highway 53 intersection from 3:30 p.m. until 6 p.m.

To help out with the event the Ponoka RCMP, Ponoka Victim Services and Ponoka Citizens on Patrol Society will be out and about collecting donations of cash, food or new, unwrapped toys

The proceeds of the fundraiser will go to benefit Santa’s Anonymous and the Ponoka Food Bank, states a release from the Town of Ponoka.

“This marks the third year for our annual Charity Check Stop. Our members donate their time to participate in the Check Stop because it’s always such a heart-warming experience to see the incredible generosity of local citizens who donate to this fundraiser every year,” says Ponoka Fire Chief Jamie Wilkinson.

Word is that Santa Claus is scheduled to make an appearance and volunteers will be handing out candy canes to motorists.
