Rallying Community Support for a Charitable May Long Weekend

As we gear up for the long weekend in May, many of us look forward to cherished moments on the lake and quality time with family and friends. 

It’s a time for relaxation and celebration, a brief pause from our daily routines to bask in the beauty of our surroundings. 

However, as we embrace this joyous escape, we must remember that not everyone in our community can share in these simple pleasures.

For some, the challenge of making ends meet overshadows the leisure of long weekends. It’s a stark reality that while some of us plan our barbecue menus and outdoor adventures, others worry about necessities. This is where the spirit of community can make a real difference. The local food bank and the Salvation Army work tirelessly to support those in need, and they are a cause close to my heart.

This weekend, as we enjoy the features of our beautiful province, let’s remember our neighbours who might be struggling. It’s a perfect time to extend a helping hand and ensure that everyone can have the opportunity to enjoy what many of us take for granted.

You can make a difference by donating to Agassiz Harrison Community Services. Every contribution, big or small, goes a long way. Donations can be made through Canada Helps, over the phone at 604-796-2585, or by emailing You can also mail or deliver your donation in person at 7086 Cheam Ave, PO Box 564, Agassiz, BC V0M 1A0. Visit their website at for more information.

Alternatively, consider supporting the local Salvation Army for Chilliwack & Area. 

Contributions can be made through their website at

Let’s ensure that as we enjoy our weekend, we also give back to those who need our support the most. 

Your generosity will ensure that everyone in our community has a little more to smile about this long weekend in May. Let’s all pitch in and show what true community spirit looks like!

Thank you, Freddy Marks
