  • Burnaby Community Conversation

Testimonials


  • This is the first chance that our kids have had to ever go to camp. Without the Bureau we would not be able to send them.

    Mario and Tracy - Parents of three children sponsored by the Burnaby Camping Bureau


  • I am a single mother with two children. Being a student also, I am on a limited income. I feel my children will benefit from camp by establishing friendships, learning new skills, and life long memories. I am grateful that my children are able to have this experience, which would not be possible without assistance. I feel people should support it as children should be able to experience, learn, and grow.

  • The best thing about the Christmas Bureau is feeling the support of the community and feeling like an equal and important member of the community; and being blessed by the generosity of others.

    Teuta - a mother of two sponsored by the Burnaby Christmas Bureau


  • Giving to the Christmas Bureau was fantastic for us. Last year we held a bake sale which allowed us to be extra generous to the family we sponsored. After Christmas we received a phone call from the mom again thanking us. We received as much as we gave through the experience and it helps teach our girls the importance of community and giving back.

  • For the past few years Ritchie Bros. has been a sponsor of several families involved with the Burnaby Community Services. We divided our 9 families into floors at our office and all the staff participate in buying gifts that are tagged on the trees. They all get very involved in this event because it makes them feel good about helping the families. We hand deliver the entire Christmas to them and then the staff wait for the email about each of the families they were supporting.
