City Hall gets drive-thru style event to spread holiday spirit

With the days counting down until Christmas, Santa took time to lend a helping hand by spreading some holiday cheer in Colwood Sunday.

Although the Colwood Volunteer Firefighters’ Association had to cancel its annual Santa Go Round because of COVID-19, firefighters came up with a drive-thru style idea to keep the tradition alive this year.

They collected cash and non-perishable food donations for the Goldstream Food Bank at City Hall on Sunday.

“It feels great to bring a smile to these kids’ faces, especially during the holidays,” said Brian Monaghan, president of Colwood Volunteer Firefighters’ Association. “We knew we didn’t want to cancel the event, so we followed all the protocols necessary to make sure these kids could see Santa.”
