Pedvac Gearing Up for Christmas Box Program

Pedvac’s Christmas Box Program is underway with names of recipients being received and donations arriving.

If anyone would like to refer a family or individual for a Christmas box they should contact Val at (506) 538-7638.  Self referrals are also accepted.  Boxes contain all the ingredients for a special Christmas dinner, a weeks’ supplementary groceries, knitting, a gift for each member of the family, and toys for all children.   

Boxes will be picked up on Friday December 21 between 11 am and 1 pm at Pedvac.  Storm date is December 22.

Pedvac is also requesting in-kind and monetary donations towards the program.  Monetary donations of $10 and up will receive an income tax receipt.

Pedvac wishes to thank all those who so generously support this program through their donations and/or their volunteer work.
