Take advantage of the arrival of the giving season

It’s coming up to the holiday season, a time to learn the joy of giving, and you have many options in town to choose from.

It’s coming up to the holiday season, a time to learn the joy of giving, and you have many options in town to choose from.

The Arrow Lakes Hospital Foundation has been able to Light up the Hospital Lights for approximately three decades now, and Bea Anton will be stationed at the Broadway Deli all day (between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.) on Dec. 7 waiting for your donation.

The foundation has been responsible for a number of additions and improvements over the years, and this year they are raising money to buy a new defibrillator for the hospital.

KSCU is also holding a silent auction raising money to keep the Nakusp Community Foundation operations going with stamps, insurance and all that necessary and exciting stuff. The tables are full of an assortment of items, some of which would make excellent presents. You have until November 30 to place your bids.

There will be more than a few opportunities to give yourself the gift of generosity this season, but don’t cheat yourself out of the best part of the holiday spirit.
