Christmas is just around the corner, which means Christmas Gift Bags for seafarers. The Mission to Seafarers: Port of Thunder Bay is looking for donations for Christmas Gift Bags to be given to seafarers in December. 

Our objective is to prepare for 14 ships with 19 bags/ship or 266 bags. Donations need to be at the Seafarersí Centre by November 22; use the drop-off box outside the Seafarersí Centre or call (807) 344-8241 to make an appointment. 

Suggested donations include mittens, gloves, toques, neck warmers, Chap Stick, hot chocolate packets and wrapped candy. Sanitization practices will be followed when putting the bags together and the items will be in a sealed plastic bag. 

Gift Bags are important this year because shore leave for seafarers has been restricted. Click on Christmas Gift Bags for more information.
