BC Pickleball Clubs and Associations across BC are raising funds for worthwhile charities over the holiday season.
One such event was West Vancouver's Hollyburn Country Club ("HCC") Santa's Pickleball Christmas events held recently. $1,000 was raised in donations which all went to the Christmas Bureau of North Shore Family Services for those who are financially challenged over the holidays. As outlined on their website: "Many of us have had financial struggles in our lives. Many of your North Shore neighbours have struggled, too, and they want to help you to celebrate the holidays with your family. If you’re unable to afford the holidays and would like to participate in the Christmas Bureau, our community is here to help. Many of the families who now give back to the Christmas Bureau were participants at some point in their lives, too."
The Christmas Bureau volunteer teams assist in a few different ways:
The Toy Shop – You can choose new, donated toys and gifts for your children ages 18 and younger. We know that toys and gifts for children are expensive, and The Toy Shop is a place where you can select a present that you can give to your child yourself.
Holiday gift baskets – You can also choose to receive a basket filled with grocery gift cards, wrapped presents for each member of your family, and other festive items. Our community understand that holiday time can be difficult and expensive, and they want you to have what you need to celebrate the season with your family.
We would like to hear more about events such as these over the holidays. If you or your organization, club or association have held similar charity events we would encourage you to send a short description of the event and its purpose to info@PickleballBC.ca.
