Event collects cash and toys for Abbotsford Christmas Bureau

The fifth annual Toys for Tots Breakfast takes place Friday, Nov. 24 to collect cash donations and new toys for the Abbotsford Christmas Bureau.

The event runs from 6 to 9:30 a.m. at the Quality Hotel and Conference Centre, 36035 North Parallel Rd.

A free buffet breakfast is provided to anyone who drops off a donation.

The event also includes live entertainment, a photo booth, a visit from Santa, and live Christmas music featuring the MEI Chamber Choir, Coalmont Band, Ever After Princesses, The Heights, and Carmelle and Cadence.

A drive-thru for drop-offs will be open for those who don’t have time to stay for breakfast.

The Abbotsford Christmas Bureau – which serves as the food bank the rest of the year – expects to help more than 1,200 kids this season.

Last year’s breakfast raised more than $32,000 and 1,600 toys.
