The 4 Wing MFRCS held their annual Storytime with Santa event on Friday, December 1, 2017. Yolanda Janssen, Volunteer Services Coordinator for MFRCS said close to 600 people attended the family Christmas event.
Staff and volunteers made walking into the MFRCS building that night feel like walking into Christmas. There were snowflakes, food, Santa Claus, and lots of entertainment for the family. Krystina Colicchio, Marketing Manager for Eastlink, attended for the first time. “I was kinda blown away,” she said. “People told me how big it was going to be but honestly, seeing this many people in the community here tonight is amazing. All the kids are smiling, and everyone knows where they are going.”
Three families went home with prizes, and many children left with bags full of homemade Christmas decorations they had made themselves or with the help of their family.
