A special thank you for making Christmas wishes comes true
The Dilico Children’s Foundation would like to extend a special thank you to everyone who contributed to our Christmas giving campaign this year. Your warmth and generosity helped to make a world of difference for our children and youth in need this holiday season.
Thank you to all TD Bank locations, Thunder Bay Insurance and the Mary J.L. Black Branch and Brodie Resource Libraries for participating as host locations for the Foundation’s Christmas Wish campaign. Thank you also to the Lakehead University Thunderwolves for making us one of the recipients of the annual Teddy Bear Toss.
To all those who kindly donated toys, filled Christmas gift boxes or made financial contributions, with your help we were able to provide children in Thunder Bay and throughout the District with over 425 gift boxes, 400 toys, 160 teddy bears
and 33 gift cards for our older youth.
In addition, we would also like to recognize the special contributions of the following individuals and organizations for their support:
- The Auditorium Foundation
- Blanche Swallwell
- Carol Sorenson
- Don Colander
- Firedog Communications
- Gladys Nieminen
- Hyde Park School
- Linda Hutton, RBC Royal Bank
- Louise Szezpanski
- Margaret Martin
- St. Bernard School
- St. Paul’s Anglican Church
- The Thunder Bay Northstars
- The Union of Ontario Indians
- The Valhalla Inn
Because of your generosity, we received handmade wooden toys, custom knitted scarves, mitts and toques, food items for our pancake breakfast and tickets to the ballet and hockey games. You helped to make the holiday season that much
brighter for our children and youth and we wish you health, happiness and all the very best in 2012.
