Christmas came early for a handful of local charities and organizations.
The groups were all the recipients of the Langley Good Times Cruise-In’s ‘Week of Giving’ which saw the organization’s board of directors deliver cheques and donations.
Altogether, $54,000 — which was raised during the 2013 Langley Cruise-In back in September — was distributed among 15 groups and organizations.
Cruise-In directors visited the various organizations during the week of Dec. 9 to Dec. 13 to make the donations.
The group included Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association, the Langley Memorial Hospital Auxiliary, Langley Community Support Groups, PuCKS (Promoting Community through Kids in Sport) program, B.C. Teen Challenge, St. John’s Ambulance, Friends of the Langley Vineyard Church, Douglas Park Community School Society, Langley Boys and Girls Club, Salvation Army, Kwantlen Polytechnic University Foundation, D.W. Poppy Secondary dry grad, Aldergrove Ninjas soccer team, Aldergrove Cheetahs soccer team and the B.C. Cancer Foundation.
