FEBRUARY, DONATION NEWS:  North Shore’s HARVEST PROJECT benefits from 2016 Christmas fundraising with $7,786 donation from Lynn Valley Centre.

THANKS TO SHOPPERS AND COOKIE LOVERS WHO RODE THE CHRISTMAS TRAIN AND TO WESTLYNN BAKERY WHO DONATED PARTIAL PROCEEDS OF GINGERBREAD TRAIN COOKIES SOLD IN DECEMBER.

The Christmas Train Ride that operated at Lynn Valley Centre from late November through December was very successful for the centre’s charitable fundraising effort. Combined with an additional amount from Westlynn Bakery sales of train cookies, Harvest Project will receive $7,786 in February to prepare for the busy Spring season ahead.

Gary and Joe from Harvest Project welcome the donation from Lynn Valley Centre presented by Shopping Centre & Property Manager, Lorelei Guthrie.

We are all grateful and thank you for your support of the $2 train ride and of the unique and tasty idea to make train cookies at our beloved Westlynn Bakery.  Cookie sales began in December and often sold out.  Now we hope to build on their popularity next Christmas.

Watch for more information on how Lynn Valley Centre will endeavour to continue to support Harvest Project this year.  And don’t forget that their charity Bin is located at Save-On-Foods at Lynn Valley Centre, another strong supporter of Harvest Project.

We all believe in the positivity and results when ‘extending a hand up, not a hand out’ through Harvest Project to help those who need some assistance on the North Shore.  We are grateful and thank all Lynn Valley Centre shoppers for your continued support.
