The KUC Giving Tree, an annual Advent-Christmas tradition, receives offering/donations that are distributed to three recipients; a local, a national and an international recipient. Our December 2018 Giving Tree recipients were:
- KUC Preschool
- the Cultural Revitalization program that runs out of Morley United Church in Southern Alberta which brings Indigenous youth in care together for cultural programs to teach them about their First Nation culture and help them overcome the adversity of being in care outside their First Nation community
- and the “Safe House Safer Society”, a program partnered with the Church of North India which operates safe houses for children who are victims of human trafficking.
The Kamloops United Church Preschool has been a focus of outreach for KUC since 1954. The goal of the preschool is to provide affordable preschool/out-of-school care for any member of the Kamloops community.
