Christmas 2023 27th Annual Be a Santa Buddy!
This is my 27th Annual Holiday Drive and once again I am trying to reach out to as many families as possible. We meet so many families during the year and want to lend a hand in December. You can be part of making a big difference for these families. I continue to welcome your donations of socks, gloves toques and new and gently used children’s books throughout the year. Your donations of furniture and clothing is greatly appreciated. Everything is reaching needy families. I continue to help twelve months of the year. Please join me and my great volunteer crew in this exciting December giving project.

It has been another difficult year for charities. Things are finally opening up again and we are bringing back our fundraising projects. We are so proud of our supporters and so grateful for their help again this past year. We have been able to continue paying the rent, utilities and truck expenses thanks to all of you. The cost of fuel is hard to keep ahead of. Help us make a difference this holiday season. Have questions or concerns….. call me at 604.294.3087 24 hours and I will return your call asap. With your support we can continue our year round volunteer work, 52 weeks of the year, collecting donations of furniture, household goods, toys and clothing and delivering to families in need. So many families need help. I see this first hand and can assure you that those we help are truly in need and are receiving little if any help from others.
Despite all the challenges, with your support, my dedicated volunteer crew and I will be helping over 1,300 families again this year and we will be continuing our work throughout 2024.
100% of your donation goes directly to families in need! We are a 100% volunteer charity.
A strict screening process is in place to ensure that those we help are truly families in need!
Donations can be mailed/dropped off or I can pick up (just call me) by Friday December 16th (the earlier the better) to Helping Families In Need Society 4095 1st Avenue at Gilmore, Burnaby, BC V5C 3W5 – 604.294.3087
