5 Days of Christmas 2016
Can you believe we've entered the the last 2 months of 2016!? November has arrived, and if the rest of 2016 has been any indicator, we're going to be celebrating the holidays in no time at all.
We will be dedicating the week of 12 Dec to the 5 Days campaign, with one event each day. We'd love to invite any and all to come get involved with the 5 days! And don't forget to follow us on Twitter for all our updates!
Adopt-A-Family 12 Dec (MONDAY)
Many of you may have heard that CUPS, a prominent charitable organization in Calgary, was unable to facilitate the Adopt-A-Family program this year. There have been a number of people reaching out to fill this gap during the holiday season. We'll be adopting a Calgary family and are waiting to hear the final details.
If you're interested in participating, please send an email to Tammy Amstutz to be included in all future updates!
Feel Good Crew 13 Dec (TUESDAY)
We’re going to hit the streets with coffee, cocoa, goodies and a bunch of feelin’ good comments for the YYC community. Last year was a huge hit – we got to stop and chat with tons of people, and spent an hour seeing nothin’ but smiles and high fives. Feel free to join us on Stephen Ave! We'll be tweeting our location the day of.
