Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre, Bower Place in Red Deer announce partnership

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is the Bower Place mall’s charity of choice this Christmas season.

Both organizations announced the partnership in a press release Thursday.

“The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is ecstatic to be Bower Place’s charity of choice. It is through community support that we are better able to create awareness of our cause and the support that we provide,” said Mark Jones, centre CEO.

CACAC and its volunteers will attend Santa’s arrival to the mall this Sunday and will work the gift wrapping station at The Great Indoor Market from Saturday to Christmas Eve. Gift wrapping will be $2-5, with all proceeds going back to the organization.

Sonya Hunt, Bower Place GM, said the mall is proud to partner with the centre.

“We admire their ongoing commitment to the children and families in central Alberta and are honoured to have them as an integral part of our upcoming holiday events,” said Hunt.

Red Deerians can also support the CACAC at the Girls Night In event Nov. 30 at Bower Place.
