Groups include the Surrey Christmas Bureau, Surrey Food Bank, Centre for Child Development, Sophie’s Place, Surrey Urban Mission, Nightshift Street Ministries, Arts Umbrella, RCMP Youth Division, KidSport, Whalley Scouts, Surrey Hospice, Kinsmen Lodge, Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation and the North Surrey Lions Club.

The window generating the highest amount will receive a cash award – one for the artists and one for the charity.

In addition to businesses with painted windows, “Snowflake Stops” (stores displaying a snowflake sticker) will be open to participants who can stop by and pick up an entry form to win a gift basket generously donated by local businesses. Draws will take place at Prospera Credit Union on at 2:55 p.m.
