Many of the youth we serve through our Youth Centre have little to look forward to over the holidays. Each year, we attempt to make Christmas a little brighter by collecting cash and/or items to distribute to at risk youth.
This year, we are looking for cash donations (see link below) or donations of items to be dropped at the Youth Centre located at 360 Festubert Street in Duncan. Hours are: 10am-6pm, Monday to Thursday.
Items needed include wrapped candy and chocolate, flashlights, safety whistles, lip balm, gloves, socks, toque, scarves, hand-warmers, gift cards, and something fun (small puzzle or game). Please don't wrap items.
These items, either donated or purchased with the proceeds of this campaign, will be distributed in a Christmas Stocking on December 22nd. The Youth Centre will be open and we will invite youth in to share in holiday snacks, create a gingerbread house and enjoy the company of caring youth workers in a warm, festive space.
Please consider helping us make Christmas merrier and brighter for the youth in our community.
