As Christmas draws near several companies and individuals have stepped up to support our families in need.
We work with families every day who are trying hard to keep their children and youth safe with a roof over their head and food in their bellies but we know this is often a struggle. With 1 in 5 children in BC living in poverty, it is likely many young people will not experience what many of us take for granted....a house filled with decorations, a turkey and fixings for the family, baked treats and chocolates and toys and experiences wrapped up under the tree.
For some families this can be a very difficult time and giving them some food, a toy, toques and mitts to keep them warm makes their lives a little more joyful.
Thanks to KalTire, Hudson's Bay, Old Navy, GAP, Waterplay, Spinco, WestJet, Aberdeen Hall, Sip Happens Wine Tours, Sport Team and many individuals for adopting one or more of our families and making Christmas brighter for these deserving families.
We also want to thank Richard and the Cardiac Care Team for collecting and donating toys to the kids in need this holiday season. As well as Sears Canada for the Tree of Wish donations.
