Christmas is a time for giving and this year is especially important as it has been particularly difficult for many people, especially small business owners.
One local business in Martensville decided they want to help people that are struggling this year. The Scrub Auto and Pet Spa owners Jerel Unger and Randy Penner came up with the idea to organize Christmas Hampers. They said, “We have been so blessed to continue to be open and serving the community and despite fluctuating revenues and an unpredictable future, we whole heartedly believe in sharing the love.”
Together with their families, they discussed what they could do that would be the most effective in the current world and a Christmas hamper came to mind, as it would be the best way to provide a contactless donation to a family in need. “We struggled with how we would choose just one or two families, which prompted us to reach out to the community to see if we could scale larger.” Their goal is to collect enough donations to help 10 families and their business will match cash donations up to $1000! They will also purchase a turkey and all the fixins’ with the money. “We will add all the food donations equally to each package and then we will add a little fun with a family game or activity. Everyone deserves at least this at Christmas,” they said.
If you are interested in helping out families in need this year you can drop off your donations at The Scrub Auto and Pet Spa. There will be a hamper set up in the garage beside their change machine and donations are coming along, as the first hamper has already been filled. “We’ve been contacted by local families about donating new toys, and of course we graciously accept all donations.”
The Scrub Auto and Pet Spa will be accepting donations at their location until Friday, December 18th at 941 8th Street South (South of Lake Vista past roundabout towards Loraas Disposal). Their hours are Monday – Friday from 9am – 10pm and Saturday & Sunday from 8am – 10pm. You can contact them at 306-477-2782.
