Parksville Community Centre holds 2020 ‘Drive-through Family Friendly Christmas Celebration’

Event takes place Dec. 5, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.

If you’re looking for a fun and safe way to enjoy the holiday season, the Parksville Community Centre (PCC) may have something for you.

The PCC will hold a ‘Drive-through Family Friendly Christmas Celebration’ on Dec. 5, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., in support of the School District 69 (Qualicum Beach) Backpack program.

In a public release, they say trees will be decorated, Santa will be present and “music will fill the air.”

All children that attend get a free hot chocolate with cookies, and the first 150 children get a free “sweet-treat” package.

Children who would like to drop off their letters to Santa can do so at the event, and enter the colouring contest where three winners receive a gift card.

The suggested donation per family is $20 cash or a $20 gift card.

All proceeds go to the “All They Want for Christmas” campaign, which provides each registered family with a Christmas hamper containing enough food for the two weeks of the winter break, a gift for every child in the family and a sweatshirt.
