On Friday, December 4th, we held our 5th Annual Warriors Christmas Hamper Night, and I must say that the great fans of this club came through like never before! I was so impressed by the generosity and giving spirit of you all. Total donations are still trickling in, but we are well over $3,500 for this years donations!
This is a picture of the team at this year’s hamper packing event. We met at Lakeview Heights Baptist Church in West Kelowna on Tuesday, Dec. 8, packed up 50 real good hampers and immediately delivered them to one of the local elementary schools. Each hamper will provide breakfast and a turkey dinner for a family for Christmas.
Thank you fans so much for your giving Christmas spirit! What a great accomplishment this year! This is my short Christmas message to you all. For me as a chaplain and a dedicated follower of Jesus, I am humbled that I can be a small part of this great cause, to serve people and to give them hope. I feel like I know the heart of Christ, a heart of peace, joy and servitude, not one of intimidation, violence and fear. This Christmas message would seem to me, to be ‘good news of great joy to all people.’ Luke 2:10
May God bless you all,
Chaplain Don Richmond
