Neighbours Helping Neighbours
Delta Firefighters Charitable Society gathered and donated $5000 to Deltassist for Christmas Programs in 2013.
Over the decades, year after year, the Delta Firefighters have been solid supporters, working to make Christmas a little better for Deltans facing challenges. From providing volunteer labour sorting toys for the Toy Depot, to helping with donations, they make the work for all the volunteers a little lighter and a lot more fun.
Delta Firefighters are one of many examples where reliable neighbours help neighbours – making Delta a better place to live.
Last year these Delta Fire Fighters, along with many others, helped the Deltassist Christmas Programs provide toys to 783 children as well as deliver 668 Christmas Meal Hampers to families, single parents and seniors in Delta.
On November 30th, 2013 this years Christmas Artists Market again stepped forward with enthusiasm.
In 2012 the Delta Christmas Artists Market raised over $400 as well as a considerable amount of food.
Watershed Artworks Gallery Shop, the City of Delta and all the vendors at the market where cheerful supporters of Deltassist’s Christmas Programs. The unique items featured at the North Delta Recreation Centre event included pottery worms, stone artwork, ocean jewellery and exotic cookies yet the Deltassist Christmas Programs were featured front and centre to each person attending. The support they showed was both needed and appreciated.
