Basket program seeks donations

— The annual Omak-Okanogan Community Christmas Basket Program, which provides holiday food for people in need, is seeking donations.

The Omak Kiwanis Club and Omak-Okanogan Civic League coordinate the program.

Distribution will be at 8 a.m. Dec. 21 at the Okanogan County Fairgrounds Agriplex, 175 Rodeo Trail Road.

Donations will be accepted from 4-7 p.m. Dec. 16-20. Bulk donations will be assembled into baskets on those days.

Each basket will contain a holiday meal consisting of a meat certificate (small, $10, or large, $12-15), plus canned vegetables (corn and beans suggested), potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing mix and dessert mix, plus staples for a week.

Donations of individual food items can be made, or a business, group or family can donate a complete basket, organizers said.

Cash donations can be made to the Community Christmas Basket Account at the Omak branch of Wells Fargo Bank, 21 W. First St.
