Dec. 20 is a day to give in Chilliwack

A Day to Give takes place Tuesday, Dec. 20 at Vedder elementary, starting at noon.

For this holiday fundraiser, if you give a little you get a little. Sometimes it’s nice to be rewarded and organizers of A Day to Give will be doing just that.

On Tuesday, Dec. 20, when you bring non-perishable food items to the event, you will receive one ticket per item to be entered to win one of many prizes.

A Day to Give is hosted by the I Heart Kids and Rainbows Foundation, which will be sponsoring two families this year for Christmas thanks to generous donations from dozens of local businesses.

Those businesses have also donated numerous prizes to be won.

Chilliwack River Valley Fire Department will be on hand serving complimentary Starbucks coffee. Bring your kids (and some items for the food bank), check out the fire truck, and enjoy a hot beverage along with other goodies.

A Day to Give takes place Tuesday, Dec. 20 at Vedder elementary, starting at noon.

For more info, call/text Lisa Hultin at 604-316-4327.
