LETTERS: Thanks for giving

Tthanks to everyone in the community — individuals and businesses — who participated in our 13th Annual Holiday Give.

Penticton & District Community Resources Society (PDCRS) would like to thank everyone in the community — individuals and businesses — who participated in our 13th Annual Holiday Give.

From those who came in to make a cash donation or those who chose stars from our Wishing Trees to the businesses who sponsored a family, we thank you for helping to make so many wishes come true this holiday season. We were able to provide a Christmas basket including holiday treats, grocery gift cards and specific presents to 100 families as well as 30 seniors and youth living independently. I was most impacted by the overwhelming gratitude from those who received these gifts and would like to let everyone know that your generosity is very much appreciated.

We could not have fulfilled as many wishes without the support of local businesses and from the Community Toy Drive, spearheaded by Diana Stirling. Our community enthusiastically contributed to this event.

We also extend a special thank you to Chad Mielke and the staff at Rona Penticton who embrace our community through their efforts year round. They are an incredible team and really came through once again in support of the Holiday Give this year.

Tanya Behardien,

Executive Director
