Soul Connexion invites you to experience the joy and excitement of giving during Dec 4-10. We invite you to participate in any of these three initiatives that can help make Christmas brighter for our community.
1) Christmas Hampers for Father Lacombe High School
Soul Connexion is partnering with ‘Bear Necessities’, a non-profit student club at the University of Calgary for the second Holiday season in row, to collect non-perishable food and household items and/or monetary donations to fill holiday hampers for 70 families at Father Lacombe High School. Significant portions of the students at Father Lacombe are impoverished, new immigrants and refugees; some even homeless and they need our help!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in donating individual items and/or a complete holiday hamper. We are also accepting monetary donations for those who would like to contribute – hampers have an estimated cost of $105.
All hamper donations must be brought into the office during the week of December 4th – December 10th during our regular office hours. Please note that Soul Connexion is not able to sort and/or store any donations prior to this week. Thank you for your generosity this holiday season. We are accepting the following in each hamper:
• canned soup/stew x4
• large peanut butter
• noodle soup x4

2) Secret Santa Toy Drive – Giving to someone in our studio
We are hosting a studio wide Secret Santa toy drive in which families can bring donations of new and unwrapped toys/gift to the studio to be gifted to another family at our studio in need this Christmas!
If you are a family in need of a Christmas toy/gift for your little one(s) this year, please email email@example.com
If you are interested in being a Secret Santa for another family at the studio this year, please visit us at the front desk. Please note that all gifts must be brought in by December 10th 2016. We thank you for your generosity!
3) Holiday Greeting Cards for the Mustard Seed
Be a source of inspiration for those who lack social support! We are accepting new and homemade holiday greeting cards that will be donated to the Mustard Seed. Cards can be brought into the studio during the week of December 4th – December 10th during our regular office hours. We will also be making cards at our Christmas Party for the Mustard Seed.
