The Christmas Hamper Program at the Royal Canadian Legion Br. 113 in Dresden is getting a boost, thanks for an online auction.
Lou Anne Fox has launched the auction on Facebook, something she has done for many years through her ‘Help From The Heart’ page.
“It’s just something that I have done since March of 2011,” she told the Sydenham Current.
“Doing auctions to help people in need out and it just makes you feel good.”
Fox said the auction (located here) has gift cards, art, homemade items, spa packages and all kinds of different gift certificates.
The auction started on November 1 and it will end on November 8 at 6 p.m.
Fox said people can head to the site and simply bid on the items.
“Right in the comment section you will see bidding and you just bid in dollar increments and whoever has the winning bid on November 8 at 6 p.m. is the winner.”
Fox said the proceeds will go towards the Legion’s Christmas Hamper Program.
“They will take that money and buy all the food and whatever they need to complete the hampers for the people in need.”
Fox said she is also holding a quarter auction at the Dresden Arena on November 18.
