The Christmas Cheer Board is getting ready to launch its annual campaign.
The Cheer Board collects donations through the holiday season, and provides hampers full of food and gifts to people in need across the city.
The Cheer Board launched its grocery bag campaign Tuesday. The grocery bags will be sent to thousands of Winnipeg homes in the Winnipeg Free Press.
You can fill the bag with non-perishable goods, and drop them in the bin at any Safeway store.
Donations for the Christmas Cheer Board can also be dropped off at the warehouse.
This year, the warehouse is located at 1395 Ellice Avenue.
