We would like to take this time to acknowledge the generous donations we received for our Christmas Hampers this year! Giving selflessly and experiencing the kindness of others is what makes this time of year so magical and special. Every single donation we received this year has truly touched our hearts and we are so grateful for all the support and encouragement from our community. Seeing our youth feel supported and valued in our community is something we truly strive for! There is something about the Christmas Season that brings the best out of people, and we are so grateful for your continued support of our community.
Thank you to Elise Ketch and her class from Shawnigan Lake School for donating some amazing items to our hampers! Their contribution of youth-friendly items was very appreciated!
