Meet Diego, Chris, and Leona at the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau, 1870 Pandora St. Chris and his team have already shipped 50,000 toys for kids in need to local non-profits and other toy bureaus across the Lower Mainland. In addition, they assist 1-2000 families directly every year. Chris has worked at the bureau since 1999, and loves working with the many volunteers who donate their time to help sort and ship gifts every year. He loves being able to give back to his community. “My family has been in East Van for four generations. My grandfather went to Templeton. We’ve always been here,” said Chris. The bureau collects donations all year round. “We always need more gifts for teens,” said Chris. “We can always use cash.” To make a donation, or to find out more about the work of the bureau, visit their website.
