With the Christmas Season near there is much pitter pattering at the Peachland Wellness Centre (PWC). Everyone at PWC is very excited to again share and care by organizing and hosting the 8th annual FREE Community Christmas Dinner. The 2021 Christmas Dinner, like last year due to COVID, will be different than in past years. This year it will again be by pick-up or delivery only and prepared and picked up at the Community Centre. We are extremely thrilled to know that people will have Christmas Dinner and a gift all thanks to outstanding Donors and Volunteers. Again, this year we have had to turn down many offers of help from people offering to volunteer. Knowing there are so many people willing to give of themselves on this day is such a great reason to say “no thanks” to their offer. We are truly fortunate to have so many amazing people in our community. If you want to help next year, get on the list early.
After the events of the wonderful Christmas Dinner the PWC Staff and volunteers will take a break. The PWC will be closed Friday afternoon December 24th and open again on Tuesday, January 4, 2022. Our Transportation program will also not be operating between Christmas and the New Year, so if you need a ride to get groceries please call and arrange a ride before the holidays start.
Programs and Services will resume and continue to follow COVID protocols in the New Year. It is hard not to write an article or anything without the word COVID in it. This pandemic has continued to cause PWC, like most of us, to pivot and change how we do things. Staff and volunteers at the PWC continue to evolve to deal with changing needs, demographics, increased demand and need for programs and services.
PWC is a dynamic entity and one that is committed to providing the best programs and services possible for the community we love. Working within a slim budget, we are as efficient as possible while we keep up with necessary changes. Donations from you are what make this possible. 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.
