Fundraising success in a challenging year
Submitted by Kyle McKay
The Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary has had quite a challenging year when it comes to fundraising efforts.
Our tried and true events were put on hold but this dedicated group came together and held a couple of very successful events.
The Purdy’s chocolate sale we held before Christmas did very well, thanks to friends, family and neighbours of our members,
Our Bunny Hop was a virtual event, with participants walking, running and biking on their own time during a two day period. Thanks to the participants and our donors this event turned out so well that plans are already underway to make this an annual event. Watch for us next Easter.
The Auxiliary has been fortunate to welcome a new group to our Society. The Phoenix Group has 27 active and energetic members who are eager to begin their volunteer roles.
The Superfluity Thrift Shop located at 15163 Prospect Avenue has remained open for business at reduced
hours, in compliance with COVID19 protocols.
Business hours are Tuesday to Saturday from noon to 4 pm.
Donations of gently used items are gratefully accepted. Adult clothing, jewelry, home décor, small tools and
collectibles can be taken to the back door Tuesday to Saturday from 9 am to 1 pm.
Two of our Groups are currently raising funds at the Superfluity Shop. The Sunset Group is selling handmade
dishcloths and scrubbies. These have been knitted and crocheted by their own members.
The Papillons Group is selling kitchen hand towels. These are available in an assortment of fabrics and colours
to accent any kitchen décor.
All of these would make lovely gifts for mom, or to freshen up your own kitchen as you tackle your spring
While you’re “staying home” this May long weekend, why not take some time and browse through the Su-
perfluity. The Shop is offering 25% off your entire purchase over a two day period only, on May 21 and 22.
The Kay Hogg Goodwill Group will once again offer the Neufeld Farms Meat Sale starting May 25.
Further details will be provided on our website as the day approaches. Check us out at www.pahas.ca
