Princeton Crisis Assistance needs help

Society looks for more community involvement

To the editor

Princeton Crisis Assistance came into existence in 1988. The original vision and purpose stated:

To provide immediate relief to individuals and families affected by crisis situations within the area of Princeton BC.

This purpose still stands. The current board of directors invites your participation with us. It is our goal to have a broad representation from across the community, from as many organizations and individuals that we can.

We are looking for people who will either: raise support for, or volunteer for, the annual Christmas Hamper Drive or; be a part of Princeton Crisis Assistance all year long by way of membership or taking a position on the Board of Directors.

Toward this purpose we are inviting you to our Annual General Meeting on November 2 at 7 p.m. at New Hope Christian Fellowship (formerly Pentecostal Church) at 165 Vermilion Avenue, beside the Vermilion Fork restaurant.

Hope to see you there. Attendance does not obligate you to be involved but we welcome your participation. Voting will be limited to members and directors.
