The event, put on by the Cape Breton Regional Police and the Mayflower Mall in partnership with the Cape Breton Victoria School Board, identifies the most deserving children in our local elementary schools to participate in a fun-filled afternoon of shopping.
On December 11th, the children were paired with an officer as they shopped the mall to spend a generous mall gift certificate. This year in addition to the gift certificates and the new winter coats, the children also received a lunch, a craft session, a new book collection, a visit with Santa, goodies for stockings and door prizes.
Our own little elves, MDE employees, Corri Erickson, Jennifer Flynn, and Meghan MacInnis were on hand for the day to assist in serving lunch and passing out the new winter coats. “We’re honored to be part of such a wonderful event” says Corri Erickson, “this is a great day, truly fun-filled for all involved.”
It was a fantastic day that demonstrates the true meaning of the holiday spirit.
