A special initiative in our city needs your help!
Every year, Our Lady Queen of Peace Ranch (known as OLQP North Ranch) invites low income children (0-16 years old) and their families from Edmonton and surrounding area to a Christmas Party they might not otherwise be able to afford.
It takes place on Saturday November 25th and each of the almost 650 children who attend will receive a new winter hat and pair of gloves, a visit with Santa and treat bag, their requested gift, hot food and treats, a shopping experience at “The Trading Post”, transportation to and from the event, and various activities, all FREE OF CHARGE. How amazing is that?!
There are doing a stuff toy drive and need donations for this great event!
- Stuffed Toy Drive – Edmontonians can drop off New & Gently Used Stuffed Animals at Welsh’s Cowtown (13715 Manning Drive – Edmonton), Eat Clean Healthy Grill & Juice Bar St. Albert (3500 Tudor Glen – St. Albert) or at the Ranch Office during business hours of M-F 8:30am-5pm (903 153 Ave NE)
