Sandy Kiwanis Chistmas Basket Program

Dear Sandy Businesses & Friends

Planning is under way for the annual Sandy Community Christmas Basket Program sponsored by the Sandy Kiwanis Club. This will be the 65th year of this remarkably successful program. Last year our request for donations aided in making it possible for us to assist 300 families within our community with baskets filled with food and toys.
                              
Unfortunately, this year will be quite different with the continuing issue of the coronavirus and ongoing unemployment, need is expected to rise. The plan this year is to build 350 boxes to address that need.

In previous years Sandy Kiwanis purchased the fresh food, meat, and basic canned goods that are included in each basket. The schools supplied additional canned foods that were used to finish filling the baskets. But as everyone knows the kids are out of school and their annual can food drive has been cancelled.

Donations from business and community members will be essential this year to fill the gap left by the downturn in the economy and the effects of the virus.

This year each basket will have the same items as in the past that will provide a holiday meal: a ham and all the sides to go with it. The cost of each basket is $50.

Please join us in support of our community and donate to this special program to help Christmas wishes come true. For your convenience you can make your donation online through PayPal.


New toys are being collected and donated by several local businesses and organizations. Anyone wishing to donate gifts can take them to the Sandy Fire District, Geren’s Farm Supply, Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate, Sandy Branch of Clackamas County Bank, Grocery Outlet, Suburban Auto, Mt Hood Athletic Club, Sandy Les Schwab Tire and Caliber Home Mortgage. The Kiwanis asks that gifts be new and unwrapped or in the form of a gift card for teens.

Best Regards,

Martin and Shannon Montgomery
