The Powell River & District Christmas Cheer committee has been a local tradition, providing hampers and toys for needy families in the area, since the society formed in 1984. The committee helps around 250 families each year including around 300 children. The Christmas Cheer relies entirely on entirely on donations from the community. The committee is in need of new toy donations, cash donations to purchase food and toys, and committee volunteers. You can help by donating money, adopting a family, purchasing gifts, or volunteering your time. Groups and people can sign up for the Adopt-A-Family program in which they take over the responsibility of purchasing Christmas dinner groceries and gifts for members of a selected family.
