Letters: Langley Christmas volunteers commended

Dear Editor,

After finally being in a financial position to start donating to worthwhile charities this holiday season, I came across your story about the Langley Christmas Bureau in a November paper. 

I was moved with the selflessness and volunteerism being exhibited by these fine people, and I decided that I would focus my donations on the Langley Christmas Bureau this year. 

It was the best decision I could have made.

With the perfect timing of Black Friday, I went to Toys-R-Us and stocked up on as many 50 per cent discount games and toys I could afford. 

My next stop was the Langley Christmas Bureau, where I was met by three wonderful ladies who welcomed me with a hug. 

It put a much needed smile on my face (after dealing with the insanity of the mall on Black Friday), and put me into the Christmas spirit like I’ve never experienced before.

After watching my children open their presents on Christmas Day, I sat back and thought about all the other children who had some presents under their Christmas tree, due to the great people at the Langley Christmas Bureau. 

The time these people volunteer to make a Christmas miracle happen must be commended. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Name Withheld by request, Langley
