Ryley Patterson and Chloe Gravel-Fallis are determined to collect toys for the less-fortunate again this year.
“I want to help at the Christmas bureau,” said six-year old Ryley, a Grade 1 student at Betty Huff Elementary. “I want to sit at the desk and help people find toys. And I want to put toys on the shelves like I did last year.”
“Me too,” said Chloe, who is almost four.
Last year, the girls collected more than $1,500 in cash and three large boxes of toys at their Spaghetti Dinner FUNraizer.
Ryley then spent a day at the Surrey Christmas Bureau volunteering. Putting the toys on the shelves was a highlight.
If you’d like to help the girls with their goal this year, buy a ticket and attend their Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser. It will take place at the Knight & Day Restaurant on King George Boulevard in Surrey on Monday, Dec. 7 from 5:30-7 p.m. Cost of the ticket in advance is $10 and participants are asked to bring an unwrapped new toy. Cash donations are also welcome.
If you are unable to attend the dinner, you can drop off a toy or donation to the girls’ FUNraizer at the Downtown Surrey Business Improvement Association (DSBIA) office at #330-10362 King George Blvd. Monday through Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Tickets are available in advance at the DSBIA office or by calling 604-580-2321.
