We believe that even those in need should enjoy the Christmas experience to enrich their lives and make this time as stress-free as possible. It is also a long time between pay cheques for those requiring social assistance and a time when they often go short on food.
On January 25 we heard from 3 organizations that serve some of the most vulnerable people in our community. Thank you to the , the PREP Society (Community Resource Centre), Powell River and District Christmas Cheer Committee, and the Powell River Action Center Food Bank for your powerful presentations and for the important work you do in Powell River! Congratulations the the Community Resource Centre for being the evening recipient - they received a pledge of $7,900 from our members!! Huge thanks to everyone who came out and to all the awesome women who are part of 100+ Women Who Care ❤️.
Emily Knight and I had the pleasure of dropping off all the presents to the Powell River and District Christmas Cheer Committee today on behalf of Powell River residents for the Secret Santa program. Thank you to all the gift givers and organizers of this great organization. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. You make Christmas really special for hundreds of Powell River families.
