Every year during the holiday season the staff and volunteers at PHC work extra hard to make sure that all of our community members have a joy filled holiday season.

Our annual Spirit Feast event where EVERYONE is welcome to celebrate together on December 25th with a wonderful meal and good cheer is happening this year at the Community Hall.

The Christmas Bureau and Hampers make a huge difference! With the help and support of the community and our partners, we can make sure that bellies will be full, warm clothing is distributed and children will get a special gift.

We could not reach these goals with out the support of the whole community and especially our partners, such as Village Foods, the Fire Department and Gabriola Players, who are putting on a reading of Scrooge with all proceeds going to the hampers Dec. 17th at the Golf Course. 🙂

From all of us at PHC, thank you for making a difference in your community and may you be blessed with love, laughter and light in your hearts and homes this holiday season.
