Postal Strike Affects Family and Children’s Services Fundraiser

in News by

Family and Children’s Services of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington reports the Canada Post strike is hindering the delivery of its Tree of Hope mailer intended to help 900 kids this December 25th.

The agency has mailed a special Tree of Hope package to more than 1000 donors and supporters with key information on how to give, what to buy and key dates and events, and says some donors have received the package while others have not.

It believes all mailers will eventually be delivered, but states that any disruption poses a significant challenge in raising funds for the 100 year old annual holiday appeal due to tight scheduling.

Family and Children’s Services is asking its donors and supporters who haven’t received the mailer to go online to its website to get the information to help the Tree of Hope campaign.

According to the website, the agency has been putting toys, food, clothing and more under the tree for the kids they serve for more than 100 years. Last year, the Tree of Hope helped more than 850 kids from across Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington.
