A Special Christmas Celebration

        A Special Christmas Celebration 

Dec 10th was a “feel good”, magical kind of day.

The celebration was Outreach Christmas!

The day began with

a delicious hot breakfast

served by a multitude of enthusiastic volunteers,

a rousing hockey tournament,

door prizes which continued throughout the day,

a chocolate guessing game,

free clothing and comfort kits,

access to a nurse practitioner for medical care

and when Santa made his appearance

people were excited

to line up for a chance to sit on Santa’s knee,

receive a present and get their photo taken.

The enticing turkey lunch

was served by volunteers and dignitaries.

A popular bingo game and

entertainment followed after lunch.

Over 41volunteers, 6 staff and 5 dignitaries

assisted in providing

a special Christmas celebration for over 159 people.

For a few hours

people who are dealing with issues

of poverty and homelessness

were able to enjoy the warmth and hospitality

of a caring community of people….
