Breakfast drive-thru raises $7,500 for Abbotsford ER expansion

It’s a Wonderful Breakfast hosted by Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation

More than 100 people helped to raise over $7,500 at the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation’s (FVHCF) recent drive-thru breakfast.

The It’s a Wonderful Breakfast event was held Dec. 10 at the White Spot on South Fraser Way in Abbotsford.

Guests drove through Christmas lights and heard holiday music as they came to collect their BC Sunny Start Sandwich with coffee. The money raised this year will go towards supporting the ER expansion at Abbotsford Regional Hospital.

As well, many people dropped off toys and toiletry donations that will help children and youth in the area.

“The support and generosity of people in Abbotsford always amazes me,” said Liz Harris, executive director of the FVHCF.

“We appreciate everyone’s willingness to adapt and continue supporting our fundraising endeavors. This year we could not make this fundraiser happen without White Spot, our sponsors and all our guests. It is with a full heart I would like to thank every single one of them.”

The foundation is still collecting toys and toiletries for the pediatric unit and Fraser East mental health programs. Visit fvhcf.ca/additional to view the wish lists and contact the office at 1-877-661-0314 to arrange dropoff.

The FVHCF supports hospitals, facilities and programs run by Fraser Health in Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.
