Mission Christmas Bureau activity ramping up

Mission's Christmas Bureau is off to a flying start, registering 350 families already according to coordinator Phil Hope.

Registration continues until Dec. 9, when focus switches to preparation of the hampers which will be distributed to families.

The Candlelight Parade is this Friday, so bring donations and watch for volunteers.

During the week, donations can be brought to the Christmas Bureau, Mission Community Services, the Mission Record or fire station one. Fire stations two and three are accepting donations on Sunday mornings, 8-10 a.m.

Watch for the firefighters next week when they will be out on the streets collecting donations.

On Dec. 7, they cover the areas north of Cherry Avenue on the west and east sides of Cedar Street.  On Dec. 8, they will visit from Cherry Avenue to 12 Avenue, between Cade Barr Street and Stave Lake Road.

As well, Christmas at the Clarke is coming Dec. 10, and donating all proceeds to the bureau, so get your tickets soon.

Finally, the West Coast Express is doing Santa Trains Dec. 10 and 17, which gets people return tickets to Vancouver when they bring donations for the bureau to the station.

Tax receipts are available for donations over $10.
