Star of the Season campaign helps Archway Community Services

Abbotsford charity among those supported by Choice Markets fundraiser

A campaign launched by Choices Markets is fundraising for several organizations, including Archway Community Services in Abbotsford.

The annual fundraiser, Star of the Season, runs until Dec. 24 and involves cashiers selling paper stars for a donation, with the proceeds going to 10 community neighbourhood organizations across the province. These groups are dedicated to helping those less fortunate.

Last year, the campaign raised $45,000.

“We work directly with local neighbourhood houses located near our stores so that we know your donations are going directly to the most vulnerable families in the community,” said Ishkandar Ahmed, CEO of Choices Markets.

The Abbotsford location is at 3033 Immel St.

Archway Community Services (formerly Abbotsford Community Services) offers more than 90 programs, including, at this time of year, the Christmas Bureau.
