Volunteers prepare 145 hampers for Christmas Cheer program this year!
Every year families needing a little help over the holidays come in and register their home to have a hamper of love and support delivered to their door. Our amazing community brings toys, food, and funding to the LRCA in order for the staff and volunteers to stuff and deliver hampers before Christmas morning.
This year, 145 families will receive a hamper today, on December 22nd, 2017.
Watch a video from the event! Mark your calendar for next year… registration will start mid-November and run until the second week of December.
Thank you to everyone who makes Christmas Cheer a part of their giving.
First we received notification that VIREB found out about the Adopt-A-Night campaign and the board approved a two-night adoption. Next Zone 3 (Mill Bay to Ladysmith) generously donated to the Christmas Cheer Fund.
The Ladysmith Resources Centre Association gratefully acknowledges the support of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board (VIREB).
Two years ago, our first application for funding crossed the desk of Guido Weisz, the brother of Mischa. Mischa Weisz is a man who wished to leave a legacy. A legacy to make the world a better place.
Weisz believed investing in our youth and empowering people to succeed through unfortunate circumstances were two key methods to achieving the goal of his legacy.
We all have potential within us. – Mischa Weisz Foundation
The Ladysmith Resources Centre Association wishes to express our gratitude to Guido Weisz for his contribution to the management of the fund and to the Mischa Weisz Foundation for creating a never-ending legacy that has enabled our organization to provide support to Ladysmith youth.
