‘Tis the Season for Giving

In good and tough economic times, there are always those in need.

So, during the holiday season VRBA supports fundraisers to make a difference in our community.

The Festival of Trees helps BC children benefit from research and critical care. Every year, our members develop creative tree decorations and step up with donations.

You can raise money for the kids by voting for your favourite tree with a donation of $2 at the Fairmont Empress Hotel. Enjoy the true spirit of Christmas by contributing to the precious gift of health for children and their parents.

Also, look for VRBA at Habitat for Humanity’s Gingerbread Showcase at the Inn at Laurel Point. Our baker Anne Marie Fortin created a fantastic gingerbread boy dreaming of a house inhabited by dragons and pirates.

Drop by with the family, view the creative displays, and vote for the People’s Choice Award with a donation, helping to provide housing for families.

VRBA also sponsors the Goldstream Chum program, sending school classes to learn about the salmon at Goldstream Park, and we donate to CFAX Santa’s Anonymous and Times Colonist Christmas Fund.

All of us face obstacles in our work lives, but there is a time to put them aside and support those with greater challenges.

Christmas is that time.

Gather up the family and visit the Festival of Trees and Gingerbread Showcase. It’s a wonderful way to enjoy the season, while helping others in need.

Have a happy and safe holiday!
