On Monday, Cam Tait reported that 3673 teens have been assured a Christmas gift by Adopt a Teen (http://www.edmontonsun.com/2015/12/21/tait-on-8-still-time-to-help-adopt-a-teen). Yesterday Claire Theobald of the Edmonton Sun reported that 2600 Edmonton teens were still in need of gift cards this Christmas (http://www.edmontonsun.com/2015/12/22/still-2600-teens-left-on-edmonton-sun-adopt-a-teen-list-to-receive-a-50-walmart-gift-card-for-christmas). The generous public has responded to this news by stepping up donations, which is great news!
I am happy to type that number has been reduced to
1300 700 teens as of 1pm 6:45pm today! Adopt a Teen has a goal of making sure that as many Edmonton teens as possible have a special gift at Christmas time. Although we have had a strong campaign this year, we’ve still got approximately $65,000 to go to.
We still need a final push to hit our number and make sure that as many Edmonton teens as possible are given a gift card! Please donate now!
To hit our goal, we need to raise $430,000. If the internet is not your thing and you would like to make a donation in person, you can visit any fire hall in Edmonton and make a donation. Or you can visit the Edmonton Sun at 10006 101 St or the Christmas Bureau at 4230 118 Ave. You can also call 780-414-7693 and speak to someone during business hours. The 2015 campaign ends at 4pm tomorrow, so act fast.
Take the time to make a donation using our secured online donation form. We look forward to reaching our goal this year! Thanks to everyone who has already made a donation, and for those who haven’t, click here and make a donation now!
