Each year the BCFED hosts two events on Christmas Eve, one in Surrey (Whalley) and the other in Vancouver (Downtown Eastside). They offer not only a warm turkey dinner on Christmas Eve, but also an opportunity for children from struggling families to receive a toy from Santa. They also collect and purchase items such as warm clothing and personal hygiene items to distribute to those in need. When the dinner is done guests receive a hamper to take with them fresh produce and canned/non-perishable goods.
Please donate new or used coats, new toques, mittens & socks and new unwrapped toys. The ILWU Local 502 Youth Movement has a giant box in the middle of the Hall for you to put these items in. Please help make a difference!
