Hooray, it’s here again, Christmas!
A time of year that is always so exciting for so many of us. Sadly, we are preparing for a Christmas like never experienced before. However, as we know Christmas is a time for sharing, caring and giving.
The Peachland Wellness Centre expresses this by organizing and supporting the many who share, care and give by donating to, or volunteering for, the “Annual Community Christmas Dinner". The preparations are underway, and the committee is working hard to organize and host this event to be served from the Royal Canadian Legion #69. This Christmas Dinner which began in 2013 thanks to the generosity of a caring and warm-hearted Peachland couple, will be offered but will be very different. It will be offered to Peachland residents via pick-up or delivery only. There will not be the sit-down social experience of past years. If you are not able to prepare a Christmas dinner for yourself because of health or financial constraints. If you are a Peachland resident or family and would like to have a festive dinner, it is FREE. Just call the Peachland Wellness Centre, Monday – Friday between 9:00am – 3:00pm to reserve your meal by December 18th.
PWC not only offers this Christmas Dinner opportunity but shares, cares and gives throughout the year and 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic has been no exception. The staff and volunteers of PWC are well known for their caring and look forward to continuing to support the community through the Christmas Dinner.
This is also the time of year when people are considering their charitable donations. Just a reminder that the Peachland Wellness Centre is a registered charity in good standing and can issue you a charitable tax receipt. You can make a donation online by going to the PWC donation page at CanadaHelps.org, select the Donate Monthly option and then continue with your much appreciated on-going donation. You can also arrange for E-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did you know you can also make your monthly gift live on? To do this you can donate through the Central Okanagan Foundation in the name of the Peachland Wellness Centre and your donation will become part of the Peachland Wellness Centre endowment fund which will allow the donation to grow and live on and support the long-term sustainability of the Peachland Wellness Centre.
Your donation to support PWC impacts our community by allowing us to help others. Your generosity helps us reach our vision to ensure that people in our community are supported to embrace a happy, healthy and independent life. Become one of our 12 Donors of Christmas!
