Season of Giving
December 1, 2020

This holiday season Legacy Co-op is focusing on giving back with our Season of Giving.  Throughout December we are placing an emphasis on local and giving back to our communities, we will be assisting our communities through numerous giving initiatives and supporting our local businesses and charitable organizations.

We're proud to offer the following initiatives this Christmas.

Letters to Santa:

We invite all Kid’s Club Members to write a letter to Santa, and drop it off in one of our special mailboxes in our Churchbridge, Kamsack or Yorkton food stores and we will ensure Santa gets them and writes you back.

Since Santa is so busy, he will need to have the letters sent to him by December 5, 2022.

Kids Shopping Day:

The Legacy Co-op Elves in partnership with the Plum Tree are helping children aged 4 to 12 with their Christmas shopping.

Sign your child up online for a half hour time slot, drop them off at The Plum Tree at their designated time and our Elves will help them shop for and wrap their gifts. Each child will also receive a $10 gift card for The Plum Tree.

Book your child’s spot online by December 3, 2022 at

Gifts For Seniors:

As we head into a difficult holiday season, Legacy Co-op is hoping to make things a bit brighter this Christmas with its Season of Giving and the Gifts for Seniors campaign. This brings personalized gifts and letters of love to more than 300 seniors in the residential care facilities in the communities of Yorkton, Saltcoats, Kamsack and Theodore.

Working with the care home teams, Legacy Co-op has donated funds to allow for the purchase of a personalized gift which each resident will receive along with a Christmas card and letter from the Legacy Co-op team.
