This year has been difficult for all of us, and we are proud to have been able to offer a little Christmas cheer to our members and their families. We wanted to make sure our members stayed safe this holiday season and, in keeping with COVID-19 restrictions, our annual in-person Kids Christmas Breakfast with Santa was cancelled.
Through careful planning with our Health and Safety Officer, DC38 and FTI of BC staff hosted a safe and socially distanced drive-thru present pick up, that allowed children to see Santa from the safety of their car windows. Each registered child received their present from Santa, hand sanitizer, a goody bag of treats, and a candy cane. Each registered family member in the vehicle received an individually packaged breakfast meal from Triple O’s.
The drive-thru was well-received and families expressed that they were thankful for the opportunity to participate in this modified-for-the-pandemic tradition. DC38’s annual Breakfast with Santa not only makes sure that the children of our members receive a hot meal and a present, but donates presents to other organizations supporting children and families at Christmas as well.
Pictures will be available for pick up at the DC38 office in the New Year. Please note that we have limited the number of visitors who can be in the space at one time. All visitors to the office must wear a mask. Please do not visit our offices if you are sick, have been around someone who is sick, or have left the country within 2 weeks of your visit to our office.
