SPDCPA Christmas Gift Wrapping fundraiser at the Dawson Mall, Dawson Creek
Many dedicated volunteers from Rural Crime Watch and Citizens on Patrol put in many hours this year to wrap Christmas presents for shoppers from all over the Peace River area (and beyond) at the Dawson Mall in Dawson Creek from December 16 through to 3 p.m. on December 24, 2015.
Even though our economic climate this year is not what it was in the last few years, there was a positive upbeat and festive feeling in the Mall this year. Christmas remained a time when many shop for gifts for friends and family and appreciate a little “help” in getting those gifts wrapped in time for the big day.
The Christmas Gift Wrap is an important fundraising event for the South Peace District Crime Prevention association, especially for its’ member groups Citizens of Patrol and Rural Crime Watch. We appreciate the assistance of merchants and the Dawson Creek Mall Manager and the generosity of those whose presents we wrapped, all by donation.
