‘The healing is just beginning . . .’

For Dave, The Collingwood Lodge at Blue Mountain is full of gifts. Not the usual gifts you would imagine, though. “There is a freshness in the air; it is peaceful and tranquil. It is God’s property,” he says. “There’s something about it that is conducive to fellowship. It comes so freely, it is very therapeutic.”

You made a family’s Christmas wish come true!

Zaida didn’t have much to give last Christmas to her young son, to anyone. My husband left me, things were financially difficult, she remembers. But like all parents, Zaida wanted Christmas to be special for her son Chase. When you are fighting to put the next meal on the table, gifts and traditional holiday celebrations seem out of reach. But friends like you made Zaida’s Christmas wish come true!
