FCSS will begin taking applications for the Christmas Angels program beginning October 1st. Applicants who may need a little help this year can book an appointment with the FCSS worker to complete the application. They will need to provide valid identification including Alberta Health Care for all household members, proof of residents, and their 2019 tax return or notice of assessment. If their financial situation has changed they will also need to provide their record of employment, most recent pay stubs or a letter from their employer, or 3 months bank statements. Included is a hamper is all the fixings for a turkey dinner, breakfast cereal, and 1 wrapped toy per child under 16 who resides with the applicant. Application deadline is December 15.
This program is 100% funded by the generous donations of the community businesses and residents, so we are once again asking for donations. All monetary donations will receive official tax receipts. Donations can be made at all FCSS offices, the Big Lakes County Administrative Office and the Kinuso Satellite Office or can be mailed to Big Lakes County, Box 239, High Prairie, AB T0G 1E0. Please note we are unable to accept food or toy donations. Thank you for generosity!
