Christmas Food and Toy Drive, 2014
You’ll see wrapped totes around the island at pick-up spots; they’ll be out all day Sunday at each location. Please help fill those totes with non-perishable food items, or new, unwrapped toys.
Beginning at 5pm, you’ll see firefighters driving decorated fire trucks around the island, picking up your donations. If you like, come and meet the trucks! Our map shows pick-up points and approximate times, so you’ll know where to find those totes, and when to see trucks in your neighbourhood.
BC Ferries employees in the Nanaimo-side terminal of the Gabriola run have put up a Christmas tree in the waiting room. Donations left there will be delivered to the Gabriola Firefighters just before Christmas.
Donations will go to People for a Healthy Community.
