The Gabriola Volunteer Fire Department recognizes that there are families on Gabriola that could use a little more help this year so we are conducting Christmas Food and Toy drive. Donations will go to the Christmas Bureau for families on the island.

On December 1st, Fire Fighters will be dressing up some of our trucks to make them a little more festive, and at 5:30pm we depart north hall to drive around the island in a Christmas convoy of lighted trucks, music and candy canes for those who come out to see...

On our route, we will be picking up from clearly marked totes distributed to various locations around the island. Totes will be set out before 9am the morning of the 'parade' so there will be plenty of time to drop something in one during the day. We will be printing and posting a map of the route and pick up points shortly!

Requested donations include new, unwrapped toys for infants, youth and teens, including books, games, sports equipment, arts and crafts kits, cars and trucks, dolls etc.

The greatest needs for nonperishable food include: canned meals, canned meat, cereal, dry beans, fruit (canned or fresh), pasta, peanut butter, rice, soups etc. in original packaging. Turkey vouchers can also be purchased at Village Foods.  Thanks for participating!
