We’ve recently witnessed the recoil of COVID-19 and its impact on families, businesses and communities across the globe.
Now more than ever, we truly believe in the importance of standing together. In times of uncertainty, it is imperative that our community be united so that we come out of this situation even stronger than before.
As always, Barrie & District Christmas Cheer is committed to supporting our community, especially during this uncertain time. We intend to proceed with our campaign this coming year in the safest way possible to ensure that our recipients, volunteers, supporters and board members feel safe and secure at all times.
After consulting with the local Public Health Unit we've been forced to make the very difficult decision of NOT being able to accept any physical donations from the community this year. This means that Christmas Cheer will not be accepting Food, Toys, Gift Cards, Clothing, Toiletries, Or Hand-Made Goods of any kind.
We will be strictly running a financial campaign this year made up of monetary donations from our corporate sponsors, local schools, and the community.
We realize this year has been challenging for most, and we will need your help now more than ever, as we anticipate application numbers to be on the rise.
Thank you for your continued support as we navigate these challenging times. We are in this together, and we will BE THERE FOR YOU IN 2021.
We're using Canada Helps to accept donations.
