Mission Christmas Bureau needs more gifts for teens

Asking local professionals to rise to the challenge

Organizers of the Mission Community Services Christmas Bureau campaign are issuing a challenge to all local realtors, law firms and insurance companies to help raise donations and gifts, especially for teenage children.

Realtor Steve Middleton has already answered the challenge and organizers are hoping more local businesses will come on board.

“We need more help as we only have three weeks left to have approximately 280 pre-teens and teens looked after this Christmas with gifts,” said Mika Brosseau.

Both the Hatzic middle school and the Heritage middle school leadership classes, along with Northview Youth Church group are doing fundraising to buy gifts for teens.

The bureau, located in the Junction Mall (unit #142 32555 London Ave.) beside The Source has a list of ideas for both boys and girls.

Gift cards in $25 increments from local merchants or pre-paid Visas are some examples of gift ideas.
