Christmas 2019 Another Success

Christmas 2019 was an absolute success. Each year we have such an amazing team of volunteers that get on board to make this day as rewarding as possible for many who are experiencing homelessness and at risk. 

We would like to thank so many who had come on board to make this such a special day. Our regular wrap around services were in attendance including One Voice Showers, our chiropractors, our food and clothing team and many volunteers who regularly attend every week . 

This year the Bearded Villains who took on the task of our Christmas puddings and our team of mighty women from the hills who donated over 200 gifts and gift vouchers. We had many groups who donated Gift cards that were given out to every person in line and this year we were able to do over 20 hampers that went to families struggling.

Our depot was filled with so many items generously donated that made this all possible. We would like to truly thank everyone who donates their time and those who are so generous with their financial contributions throughout the year . This is what keeps us continuing to be able to be so effective . 

We thank our First Nation's Santa who was so generous. He was loved by so many and was a great help in giving out gifts and handshakes to so many. 

This year we opened up a big area where families came and set up tables of lots of goodies and gave out many home cooked Christmas fare. 

2020 looks like another year of many who are living on the street, however we are glad to say we have also seen many of our regular faces now off the street in their own little place. Some have even come and registered to volunteer with us. 

Again we thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you again through 2020.

Kind Regards

Ron Reid, Michael Edwards, Aaron McGreger, Jed Fay, Gethen Sullivan, Paula Turton and all of our Team Leaders .
