Over the past few years, the Castlegar campus has donated an overwhelming amount of toys and gifts to the Tree of Sharing. Your generosity has translated into many happy moments for the Moms and Dads who can’t afford to purchase toys and for the children who would not otherwise receive them.
With your support we look forward to participating in this fun and worthy activity again this year. Two Christmas trees have been set-up, one near switchboard and the other in the administration building, both featuring small cards on them.
The cards are simple reminders for you to purchase a gift if you wish to. Please feel free to take one and next time you’re out shopping, think about purchasing something for a needy child in our community.
Don’t forget that it is often the teenagers that are forgotten; everyone loves to buy toys for little kids, and it seems often the older children are left out.
If you would like to donate money rather than gifts, please feel free to do so. We can accept cash, cheques or gift cards and will make sure all funds get to the food bank. Unwrapped gifts and monetary donations can be delivered to A29 before December 12th.
