It’s nearly time for the GVFD’s 4th Annual Food & Toy Drive!
On Sunday, December 6th, the GVFD will place wrapped totes around Gabriola to collect your food and toy donations. Then, at 5pm, we will begin our drive around the island in our decorated fire trucks to collect the totes. Please check the posted maps and schedules to see where/when we will be stopping in your neighborhood. We’d love for you to come and meet us and give us your donation in person. We’ll have Christmas music and candy canes!
Everything we collect will be passed along to PHC for distribution to fellow Gabriolans in need.
Thank you for your continued support.
The toy drive went very well, in spite of being the proverbial dark and stormy night. While the crowds were not large, the donation boxes were stuffed! Bill and Dimitri delivered the loot to the PHC, and it appears to be even bigger than last year. We will update later with that info.
Thanks Gabriola for supporting us in this endeavour. Our FF’s enjoy undertaking it as well.
