Toys Needed for Christmas Wish Breakfast!

Each year we ask Vancouverites to join us at the Hotel for our annual Christmas Wish Breakfast and donate a new, unwrapped toy to the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, in order to make Christmas special for families in need.

The gift most commonly given are stuffed animals for little kids – however teenagers are in the most need of toys during the holiday season.

While the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau appreciates ALL gifts given, they would like to request that donors offer toys for tweens and teens and even helped put together a wish list for Santa!
