The Family Resource Centre at SIGN on Broadway held its annual Christmas event, where a horse drawn carraige took you on classic holiday wagon ride, food, fun and all kinds of other events could be had. There was something for everyone, and numerous community partners banded together to help make it happen.
“This is our annual Christmas party,” said Kim Gelowitz, Early Years Facilitator for the FRC.
“We have partnered with a few partners, and it’s basically an event to kind of show our families that we appreciate them coming and using our services.
“We have over 350 people coming tonight, so we’ve partnered with SIGN, of course -- they’ve donated the building [and] rooms downstairs, helping out. Mr. Mike’s donated potatoes, corn and salad. Two of the cooks came and donated their time to come and cook the turkeys for us and prepare stuff in the kitchen.
“Then, we got the turkeys from Superstore, and Save-On Foods helped us with some stuff. They donated the buns and ingredients to help make a dessert. So really, it’s about community investing in community.”
