i)  Online https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/50796   Use the dropdown to select ‘tenant holiday gifts’.  Tax receipts for donations over $3.00.
ii)  Drop loose coins/cash:  Coming Soon we hope at Starbucks 🙂  Look for “Brentwood Cares Holiday Fund”, it will be split Carroll Place / Food Library / and a winter hat and mitt fund.

BCA Christmas Potluck and Talent Show

This event is a relaxed, no pressure evening where kids can have fun entertaining a crowd of friendly faces from their neighbourhood.

Play a song on the piano, sing a Christmas carol, share a dance routine, or a few Christmas riddles.

Whatever the kids decide to share, the accepting Brentwood audience will be eager to offer applause and support.

We welcome group or solo performances either a few seconds or minutes long.

We welcome whatever your child feels comfortable with including coming to participate as an audience member.

To help our MCs, please email brentwoodeventsyyc@gmail.com ahead of time to offer an idea of what your child would like to share and how many will be attending the event.

This will be a festive night to celebrate the holiday season.
