The spirit of Christmas is alive and well Christmas in the Winterland Youth Group.

After the Marystown Santa Claus Parade Dec. 10, the group made its annual trek to Burin Peninsula Health Care Centre to deliver 206 Teddy Bears, 49 Crayons/Markers, 59 Coloring Books    and 25 Pairs of PJs.

Burin Peninsula Health Care Foundation (BPHCF) Board vice- chair Shirley Coady, on behalf of the board members, thanked the group and assured them BPHCF Staff will forward gifts to medical, paramedics and community caretakers throughout the region.

They, in turn, will deliver the items to those in need of comfort and care, now and throughout the year.

The Winterland Youth Group has been using its club’s time and talents to contribute Christmas Gifts for a number of years now, a special project to help remind us all of the true meaning of Christmas.

Ms. Coady said “The willingness of these young people to give back speaks well for them, their parents, and club leaders.”

Health Care Foundation CDO Sharon Snook thanked the young people as well.

 “It has become an annual Christmas event that I look forward to each year, not only for the great gifts but to see the joy this activity brings to them. I love to see the pride and delight these young people greet us with each year and I hope they carry that spirit with them for their lifetime.”
