Volunteer to help Santa come to Maple Ridge

Donations are still needed to support Christmas in the Park

The Santa parade needs your help.

Santa’s volunteers are working harder than ever to bring Santa to town for the Maple Ridge Christmas Festival on Dec. 3.

But all of their efforts cannot go forward without the support of businesses and organizations within the community who make generous donations.

Through these difficult economic times, the volunteers for the Maple Ridge Christmas Festival Society are still struggling to get enough money to fulfill the minimum budget required to bring the joy of Christmas to Maple Ridge.

“We greatly appreciate any donations that can be made, and there is still time for you to make a difference,” said Natalie Freer, publicity coordinator for the event.

• If you would like to find out more about how you can show your support and make a donation, please contact us at sponsorshipcoordinator@mapleridgechristmas.ca.

For more information, contact Natalie Freer at 604-780-9851 or email publicitycoordinator@mapleridgechristmas.ca.

• Come out and support the Maple Ridge Christmas Festival while enjoying an evening of Celtic Music on Friday, Nov. 18. For more information or for tickets please, go to actmapleridge.org.

• The Maple Ridge Christmas Festival planning committee is also looking for individuals who want to make a difference in their community and volunteer.

Whether you want to help with the planning, or just want to volunteer on the day of the event, community support is greatly appreciated.

This special day would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of volunteers.

The committee meets every Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Burnett Fellowship Baptist Church – 20639, 123rd St.,  Maple Ridge.

Please come out and join in the joy of planning a free family event in your community.

For information on volunteering for the day of the festival, please email us at Volunteercoordinator@mapleridgechristmas.ca.

• If you are part of a businesses, non-­profit group, or a family interested in entering a float in this years parade, there is still time. The cut-off date for floats is Nov. 30 at noon (mapleridgechristmas.ca).
