Donate Money, Gifts and/or Time
The Powell River & District Christmas Cheer committee relies on volunteers and donations from the community to provide food and gifts for families in need at Christmas. This program was started in 1948 and provides support to over 250 families in need each year. If you are interested in donating time, new toys or money, it would be greatly appreciated. Here are some simple ways to help:
1. Donate money. Donations greatly appreciated. Cheques made payable to the Powell River and District Christmas Cheer Committee may be mailed: C/O Shelley Cherry, Treasurer, 4532 Harvie Avenue, Powell River, BC V8A 2P1. For your convenience, you may now email/electronic transfer your donation to PRchristmascheer@gmail.com. Please do not forget to email your security password and return address for your receipt. Tax deductible receipts will be issued for donations of $20.00 or higher.
2. Donate New Toys/Gifts. Pick up a Christmas gift tag off one of the Christmas Cheer Trees located at First Credit Union, First Insurance, Canadian Tire, Walmart and Westview Agencies. Purchase a gift for the age of the child noted, and drop that gift off at either location.
3. Donate your time. The committee needs help! Join the planning committee that helps make it all happen. If you would like to volunteer please contact Geri Anderson at 604-489-9866 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
