HUDSON’S HOPE, B.C. – The Hudson’s Hope RCMP detachment commander says he’s awestruck by the community’s generosity after this year’s success of the 12 days of Christmas giving toy drive.

“I am always taken aback by the amazing generosity that the people and company’s in our communities show to help others,” remarked Cpl Rob Gardner.

This year, the Hudson’s Hope Emergency Services partnered together, holding two Stuff the Bus events where residents brought toys and cash donations.

Toys were also collected at the District of Hudson’s Hope Office.

The drive wrapped up on December 14th, after which Gardner and fire chief Brad Milton paid a visit to the Friends of Hudson’s Hope Thrift Store with both emergency vehicles overflowing with toys and gift cards.

“A huge thank you goes out to everyone that stepped up this year, but extra kudos need to go out to ARC Resources, BC Hydro and Legacy Village Market,” noted Milton.

Donations such as items for seniors and families and toys for kids up to 18 years of age were then turned over to Lynnea Stacey from the Friends of Hudson’s Hope Society.

The Society will distribute all the collected items to local families, adding a little extra Christmas cheer.

The Friends of Hudson’s Hope Society also operates the local Thrift store and food bank assisting Hudson’s Hope residents. They are always accepting donations, which can be dropped off at 10324 Getting St, Hudson’s Hope.
