The senior leadership of the Abbotsford Police Department (APD) brought holiday cheer last Wednesday (Dec. 13) to families at Canuck Place Children’s Hospice.
Chief Bob Rich and his team hosted a turkey pot pie dinner followed by festive gingerbread house-making for more than 50 Canuck Place family members.
Canuck Place CEO Margaret McNeil said the festive season can be a challenging time for Canuck Place Families.
“We’re so grateful for the joy and love that the Abbotsford Police brought to our families,” she said.
“Each smile was a testament to the lasting impact of this special afternoon that allowed children and families to savour every moment together.”
“As a community, we feel it’s important to support each other,” said APD Sgt. Judy Bird. “We are honoured to share a bit of joy with Canuck Place families and also show our support for the hospice as a community partner.”
