Still time to get in on Santa’s Anonymous

PSC program taking registrations until Dec. 12

The annual campaign by students and staff at Ponoka Secondary Campus is going well.

That according to Karen David, a teacher at PSC and supervisor of the school’s Santa’s Anonymous program that is in its 38th year.

“The Stuff-A-Bus (held Dec. 3) went well,” David said.

“We were up slightly in cash donations and down in food.”

David added the program is still taking registrations for food and gift hampers until Dec. 12.

“People can still call Santa’s Hotline at 403-963.7225. So far, our numbers are lower than last year at this time, but we still have a few days to go,” she said.

The school is also holding its food drive competition, this year called the 14 Days of Christmas, that ends today (Dec. 11) with David noting that some classes have already completed the 14 day challenge.

Food and monetary donations were also collected at the school’s annual Santa Showdown game at the Ponoka Culture and Recreation Complex held Dec. 10.

Also starting Dec. 11, a portion of the school will be transformed into Santa’s Workshop.

“On Wednesday, we will be in full swing — preparing food and gift hampers,” David said.

All of the hampers will be delivered on Dec. 18 between 3:30 and 6 p.m.
