Get in the Christmas spirit by having your little one get their face painted at the Cone Castle. The store at 5 Fir St. in Red Deer will have face painting from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Dec. 15 for $5, of which half will go towards the food bank. Candy Faces will be on site for those two hours to provide the face painting. Until 6 p.m. on Saturday, people can stop by the store and donate a non-perishable item for the food bank or a new toy for the Red Deer Christmas Bureau. There will also be food, prizes and raffle tickets on Saturday. For those who are unable to stop by on Saturday, but want to donate, dropoffs can be done seven days a week between 1 and 6 p.m.
Deserving families will benefit from a Sylvan Lake realty company’s annual Christmas tree sales campaign. The Central Alberta Women’s Outreach’s Adopt-A-Family program will get $13,240 thanks to the fifth annual Trees 4 Treasures fundraiser by Trilliant Real Estate Group. Funds donated by patrons who pre-ordered a Christmas tree and picked them up last week were matched by the company.
