Santa?s little helper

Lori Penner Red River Valley Echo

Dozens of volunteers, including 10-yearold Aliya Kehler, showed up at the Altona Mall on Saturday, Dec. 13 to pack hampers and wrap presents for the Rhineland Empty Stocking Fund. The organization provides a little help for families and individuals who are struggling over the holiday season, with gifts and groceries delivered right to their door. Organizer Irv Loewen says the number of recipients is definitely up this year, so all the help from the volunteers and local businesses was greatly appreciated. Hampers and gifts will be delivered to the recipients on Saturday, Dec. 20. Loewen would also like people to know that financial donations will still be needed, long after the Christmas season is over. See page 14.
