We are happy to announce the Toy Drive will return to its normal format (indoors) this year! All the event details are listed below. We hope to see many familiar faces on Saturday December 11. The generosity towards this event over the years has been absolutely amazing and we are so grateful for all the support. Please help share the event details. Anyone unable to attend but would like to contribute, can drop off a gift at the club the next two Thursday nights or at the home games this Saturday. 

WHERE: Capilano Rugby Club. 305 Klahanie Court.
WHEN: Saturday December 11th, 2021.
Drop in anytime between 12pm – 5pm.

The Capilano Rugby Club has been hosting a Toy Drive every year since 1984. The 38th annual event will take place on Saturday December 11, 2021 at 12:00pm. This year we will be supporting the following local organizations:

– North Shore Christmas Bureau run by North Shore Family Services
– North Shore Neighbourhood House
– North Shore Salvation Army
– North Shore Food Bank

As we have done the last few years, we will be collecting canned and non-perishable food items to be given to the North Shore Food Bank as well as toys/gifts. We will have a collection box setup beside the tree.

There will be a collection of finger foods, sweets, and drinks served on the 11th. We will also have a few festive activities set up for younger children in the clubhouse. So come in and drop of your gift under the tree and stay a few minutes or a few hours and enjoy the festive atmosphere. Remember it’s all for a great cause. Feel free to bring anyone along with you as it is a family event. Any questions feel free to contact Chris Robinson at: crobinson25@hotmail.com or at 604-836-1408. Proof of vaccination is required to attend this indoor event and masks must be worn unless eating/drinking.

If you can’t make it down to the club on the 11th we will have a drop off box inside the clubhouse on Thursday December 9th. Gifts must be unwrapped and unopened.
