Each year, PQA’s fundraising/philanthropic efforts culminate with our holiday Give Back campaign. We select families in need in Fredericton whom are nominated by our staff and collect holiday packages for them that include clothing, food supplies and gifts. This year, PQA is supporting 5 new families.

The Give Back campaign was started in 2005 and has supported 20 families and raised over $20,000 since its inception. 2011 marks a new twist to this staff favorite activity. PQA wishes to have families…be families! We are putting an emphasis on games that can be played together as a gift.

Another twist this year has to do with the fundraising activities. Over the years, PQA staff has amassed funds for this initiative by way of silent auctions, kitchen parties, 50/50 draws and raffles. We are now adding a donation in lieu of sending paper cards to our clients and partners. PQA is donating $1.00 for every e-card sent during this holiday season!

We are proud to announce that PQA has raised $3,500 for this year’s Give Back campaign! See below for pictures of the PQA staff wrapping and the end products before they are packaged in baskets.
