The Prince George Council of Seniors is hosting its annual Christmas Hamper Project.

Application deadline has been extended to Dec.10.

Applicants must be 65 years or older and in receipt of the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS).

Because of the pandemic donations look a little different this year as cash or grocery store gift cards (preferably SaveOn) will be accepted and no groceries or gifts will be accepted.

Donations may be mailed to the Seniors Resource Centre, 721 Victoria Street, V2L 2K5 or dropped off Monday to Thursday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Charitable tax receipts will be available for cash donations as well as gift card donations with receipts.

Last year more than 230 hampers were provide to seniors in need and the same is expected this year.

This annual project is 100 per cent dependent on community donations. The PGCOS thanks every volunteer and donor in advance.
