The Christmas season is in full swing at the Kelowna Women’s Shelter this week with another great party, this time for the kids!
We started the week on Monday with a huge present wrapping session, as staff and volunteers wrapped hundreds of donated toys and gifts. Thank you again to the generous donation from Royal LePage.
Then on Wednesday, we hosted a celebration for children and youth who have used the shelter in the past year.
More than 65 kids took part, enjoying pizza, snacks, games, crafts, cookie decorating, face painting, a magician and of course, a visit from Santa Claus! Each child took home personalized gifts just for them along with a few extra goodies and treats.
It is always so wonderful to see the joy and excitement on the kids’ faces as they celebrate the Christmas holidays. For privacy reasons, we won’t be posting photos of the children– but know that their smiles were huge!
Thank you to the many staff and volunteers who worked hard to make this annual event so special.
