The Langley United Soccer Association is hosting its first food and toy drive Saturday, Dec. 8, from 8: 30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Willoughby Community Park.
Players, parents, and Langley residents are asked to bring non-perishable food items or a new unwapped toy which will be distributed to the less fortunate in this community.
The Willoughby soccer fields are located next to the Langley Events Centre and behind R.E. Mountain Secondary.
Langley United will be giving out hot chocolate and candy canes for the kids and coffee for the adults.
Anyone who brings a donation will also be eligible to put their name in a draw for four Whitecaps tickets for the upcoming season.
Langley United is donating four sets of these tickets to be won.
The Langley Christmas Bureau is in great need of toys for children between the ages of nine and 15, and especially boys.
The Langley Food Bank advises that no baby food, soup or clothing/bedding are needed.
The wish list includes cash, gift cards for grocery stores, canned fruit and vegetables, sandwich spreads (jam, peanut butter), rice and pasta dinners (no macaroni and cheese needed), canned meats, diapers sizes 4, 5, 6 only, and personal care items. Case lots are welcome.
