A great way to make a mark in the community. Help us meet our goal of 500 boxes this year.

What is This Project About?

This is an opportunity for CLA to give gifts of love to children in our neighborhood schools here in Langley City. It is also an opportunity to give and serve together. These boxes are a tool to reach out to schools, to the students and the staff. We have seen such great fruit this past year in the relationships that we have built with our school communities. They know we are a community that cares and loves the students! We are given the opportunity to host an assembly and teach on kindness, love and giving back! We are a part of their Sports Day, Grade 8 Grad and many other days!

We would like everyone to give towards at least one box. Our target is 700 boxes @ $25/box. The investment in these boxes goes a long way, they are greatly appreciated by the school staff, children and parents. This is the 8th year of the BC BOL so we are known in our local schools.
