Chilliwack’s Royal Hotel offers warm, helping hand this Christmas

The Royal Hotel is collecting donations of gloves and mittens for those in need this holiday season

The Royal Hotel is warming hands and hearts this holiday season.

During this time of gift-giving, the local hotel is asking the community for donations of new mittens and gloves for those in need as part of Chilliwack Community Services Christmas Sharing campaign.

“We are pleased to partner with Chilliwack Community Services this holiday season by collecting mittens and gloves that will be given to those in need,” said Len Wiens, Royal Hotel general manager.

People can bring in donations of new or handmade mittens and gloves for children and adults and make the hotel’s décor more festive by hanging them on the branches of the 12-foot Christmas tree located in the lobby.

They will be collecting the items up until Saturday, Dec. 21 and then donating them to Chilliwack Community Services for distribution.

The hotel is also a location for the Chilliwack Community Services Angel Tree Program, where anonymous unwrapped gifts are being collected. To take part, folks can grab one of the Angel Tree cards hanging from the tree and then shop for a gift. Each card is marked with the age and gender of the child that the gift is meant for.

The Royal Hotel is located at 45886 Wellington Ave.
