We’re partnering with Hyland Precast, and a few other generous businesses, with the simple goal of making the holiday season a bit brighter for a number of families. For the fourth year in a row, we are asking the community to nominate local families or individuals in need. We’re also putting a call out to other businesses and individuals who are interested in getting involved by providing donations.
Last year, we banded together to help more than 50 families in the Comox Valley. Many of these families received gifts and groceries. Other donations came in the form of providing food and accommodation for two families with children who spent Christmas in the hospital, buying new brakes for one family’s car, sending one deserving mother for a trip to the spa, and allowing the opportunity for a single mother to take her daughter for a visit to Science World.
Our mission with Building Christmas Dreams is to give back to our community. We joined forces with Hyland Precast four years ago and have been able to build on the campaign ever since. We are lucky to have many individuals and local businesses helping us along the way and we are very excited for the opportunity to support others during this holiday season.
This year a new website was built with the goal of helping more families by attracting additional nominations and collecting donations online. Building Christmas Dreams is live from now until December 15, 2020. If you’d like to nominate a local family or make a donation, please visit the new website: www.buildingchristmasdreams.ca
