With snow on the ground, baking in the oven, and decorations in our homes every year, it can be easy to take our holiday traditions for granted. But for those living from paycheque to paycheque, or in need of shelter, Christmas can be an impossible luxury. While we celebrate the holiday season as a family at Capital GMC Buick Cadillac, it’s important to remember our responsibility to make sure everyone in our community can meet their basic needs. It takes very little to brighten someone’s Christmas, and there are a number of ways for you to get involved:
- Donate to a food bank or a local family in need
- Participate in the Adopt-A-Family Children’s Foundation charity where you will get the fantastic opportunity to sponsor a family and give them an amazing Christmas
- Volunteer at the food bank or a similar foundation
- Volunteer at your local animal shelter, children’s hospital, or retirement home to bring a little holiday cheer to the animals and people there
Every year, St. Augustine school in Regina holds a Christmas dinner for their students. This includes those at the Jean Vanier School where students with significant intensive needs receive education in academics, communication, and self-care. This year, the Capital Automall is proud to partner with St. Augustine school in bringing their 400+ students a little holiday cheer. Providing food, gifts, and volunteer support, we’re all excited to help make a small difference and we hope the rest of you will join us in showing our holiday spirit this year and in the future.
