iFund Lending doubles Surrey Christmas Bureau donations

Company will match donations to help charitable organization assist those in need during the holidays.

With the help of iFund Lending, the Surrey Christmas Bureau now has the opportunity to have dollar donations matched.

iFund Lending CEO, Gord Bylo, is encouraging all businesses and individuals in Surrey to make a donation to the bureau, which iFund Lending will match up to $10,000 – allowing the Surrey Christmas Bureau to provide hampers and toys for all families registering this year.

There is a widening gap between the economically sound in society and those who can’t make it month to month. This is particularly true for families with younger children. As a result the Christmas bureau has seen need grow 10 per cent year over year, however funding and donations have not kept pace.

Community partners, such as Bylo and the iFund Lending family, are essential to continued operations for the bureau especially during slow economic times when donations typically decline.

The Surrey Christmas Bureau will assist more than 1,700 low-income families and kids this year with basic food and presents for the holiday season.

“iFund Lending, being a long term supporter of the Surrey Christmas Bureau has shown that they care about living in an inclusive community and know that the compassion and support they demonstrate now will pay off later as children grow up feeling less alienated from the wider society around them.” said Surrey Christmas Bureau Coordinator K.C. Gilroy.

Bylo states: “Our society needs to be judged based on how we treat our most vulnerable. The Surrey Christmas Bureau shows us how.”
