Here is what is happening at The Salvation Army Quesnel this Christmas season!
Nov 28 – Dec 24 – Christmas Kettles: The Salvation Army Christmas Kettle Campaign is one of Canada’s largest and most recognizable annual charitable events. Kettle donations collected in Quesnel stay in Quesnel, making an impact right in our own city. We are seeking volunteers to ring the bells at our kettles. Please contact 250-992-8784 if you are able to help.
December 5 – Santa Shuffle and Elf Walk: Run 5km or walk 1km, receive a special participant’s medal from Santa himself, and enjoy some hot chocolate and prizes, all in support of The Salvation Army. Rudolph, Ebenezer Scrooge, the Grinch and other holiday characters will cheer you on as you complete the course. The race starts in LeBourdais Park at 10 a.m., and will follow the River Walk Trail. Nationally sponsored by The Running Room and locally supported by Cariboo Country, The Goat, and Big Country Printers. To register visit www.santashuffle.ca.
December 19 – Breakfast with Santa: We will be hosting a pancake breakfast at the Legion for low income families. Santa will deliver a special present for each child aged 16 and under. The event is free, but tickets are required. Please call 250-992-7079 to register. Supported by The Royal Canadian Legion Branch 94 Ladies’ Auxiliary.
December 21 – Christmas Sunshine Bags for Seniors: We will be delivering a bit of
Christmas cheer to residents of Dunrovin Park Lodge and Maeford Place in the form of carolling, visits, and gift bags.
December 25 – Warrior’s Song Café Christmas Dinner: The Christmas Dinner which had been hosted by St. John the Divine Anglican Church will now be hosted by The Salvation Army. We are serving Christmas dinner with all the trimmings to approximately 200 people.
