Allan Reid, president of The Magic of Christmas, joined The Jeff and Sarah Show to tell us about The Magic of Christmas. The Magic of Christmas partners with families who need some extra help at Christmastime.
The charity, which runs completely on donations, uses Calgary Transit buses to deliver donations across the city on Christmas Eve. Families get the decorated trees as well as gifts, treats and clothing.
The Jeff and Sarah Show and Q107 Calgary have also partnered with The Magic of Christmas year.
Starting December 1, Q107 will be collecting gifts for Calgarians of all ages. Here are some suggestions:
* Hockey sticks
* Sporting goods
* Bath sets
Check out the full Wish List HERE.
This year, Jeff and I will be joining Global Calgary for their Morning of Giving. On December 13, join us in Global Calgary’s parking lot at their northeast studios as we collect new and unwrapped donations for The Magic of Christmas. Read more on the event HERE.
You can also drop off gifts for children, teenagers and adults here at Q107 Calgary throughout the month of December – 3320 17th Ave SW from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The hit of the Find Christmas Downtown event was Danny The One Elf Band, who wandered around The Core entertaining tree decorators, families and shoppers.
Thank you to everyone who came out to The Core to kick off The Magic of Christmas! – Sarah
Wow. What a night! Thank you to all of the companies that came out tonight and donated their time, energy and creativity to make 150 trees sparkle!
