Steveston Community Society staff held a Christmas party and wanted to participate in the spirit of giving to children in need for Christmas. Instead of spending money on buying each other a gift, they drew names and purchased a toy that reminded them of that person. Much fun and laughter was enjoyed by all during this process.

The toys remained unopened and will be donated to Volunteer Richmond for distribution with the Richmond Christmas Fund.
