Santa arrives at Healthy Families Program

Comox Valley Family Services (CVFSA) sponsors a Christmas theme event for the Healthy Families Program

SANTA CLAUS ARRIVED recently with gifts for all the women and children in the Healthy Families Program.

At this crucial time of year for families, Comox Valley Family Services (CVFSA) sponsors a Christmas theme event for the Healthy Families Program, sending invitations to parents and children (up to five years) who are attending programs.

This year, they were fortunate to have the generous support of the Living Hope Church.

This well-attended gala event was held Dec. 15 at the Native Sons Hall. Over 150 parents and friends, children, community guests, volunteers and agency staff enjoyed an exquisite turkey dinner with all the trimmings, organized and prepared by volunteers from the Living Hope Church.

Santa arrived with gifts for all the women and children enrolled in the Healthy Families Program.

CVFSA wishes to extend sincere and heartfelt thanks to all the businesses and individuals who have generously donated their time or made financial contributions as we could not have done it without your substantial help.
