On tables, on chairs, and even on the floor - people filled the Regina & District Food Bank on Saturday, December 10th for the 47th annual Santa's Anonymous wrap day.
Hundreds of people showed up to the food bank to help wrap the gifts collected over the last 4 weeks. The event started at 9 a.m. but many volunteers were lined at the food bank an hour before the doors opened to secure themselves the best wrapping spot.
The event is a partnership between 980 CJME the Salvation Army in Regina and the Regina Food Bank. Earlier in the week, the Salvation Army said more than 1,500 children has signed up to receive gifts from Santa's Anonymous, but the list was expected to rise to more than 1,900 before the end of the week. To ensure that there were no shortages in toys and that all the children registered for the program received gifts 980 CJME's (Rawlco Radio) owner Gordon and Jill Rawlinson generously donated $10,000 to the program.
Over the next week the Salvation Army and Regina Food Bank will distribute gifts and hampers to all the families registered for the program.
