Hundreds of holiday hampers have been spread throughout the valley in the run-up to Christmas, thanks to the Christmas Bureau of the Columbia Valley and generous donations from the community. This year, the holiday hampers aided more than 800 people in the community, providing them with boxes filled to the brim with goodies. Top: just some of the many members of the hard-working hamper team stand among the sea of over 140 hampers. Bottom: Nan Jones grabs a box and gets to work.
