Comox Valley businesses host Building Christmas Dreams campaign

Cameron Contracting and Hyland Precast are looking to make the holiday season a bit brighter for some families this year with their Building Christmas Dreams campaign. For the third year in a row, they are asking the community to nominate local families or individuals in need.

Last year, the team of businesses banded together to help more than 10 families in the Comox Valley. Many received gifts and groceries. Other donations came in the form of a new set of tires, courtesy of Fountain Tire, and a Christmas hotel stay.

“Our mission with Building Christmas Dreams is to give back to our community. We joined forces with Hyland Precast three years ago and have been able to build on the campaign ever since,” said Kristy Cameron, controller for Cameron Contracting. “We are lucky to have many individuals and local businesses helping us along the way and we are very excited for the opportunity to help others during the holiday season.”

Building Christmas Dreams will be accepting nominations until Dec. 15. If you would like to nominate a family or individual who could use a helping hand, visit

The two businesses will also be hosting the second annual family skate on Dec. 22 from 11:45 am – 1:15 pm. Entrance is free with the donation of a non-perishable food item or a monetary donation to the local food bank.
