The United Way Tree of Lights is coming back this holiday season in Prince George. In a collective effort to bring the light of hope and joy in the face of the global crisis, this 60-foot tree is once again hoisted atop the Coast Prince George Hotel by APA in downtown Prince George.
We recognize that the COVID-19 pandemic has created significant challenges for people all around the world. Our family, friends, and neighbours are affected by the pandemic amplifying already difficult circumstances in a broad range of #unignorable issues like isolation, food insecurity, unemployment, mental wellness, drug addiction, and domestic violence. In response to these ever-increasing needs, we have set a fundraising goal of $30,000 with proceeds going towards raising awareness and support of programs and services to fight the #unignorable issue of ‘drug abuse and overdose’ in Prince George and the other issues that surround it, like mental wellness and basic needs.
The holiday season can make difficult situations even more distressing, amplifying already fragile situations and putting further pressure on waning resources. Let’s come together – apart – and help our community thrive!
