If this year has taught us anything, it’s that home is where the heart is, and supporting local small businesses is essential to seeing White Rock and South Surrey thrive. If you’re in a position to spend this season, shopping locally is one of the most effective ways to support our growing community.

For our first annual Community Gift Guide, we’ve put together 5 great picks for him, her, and you…plus some great options for the little ones in your life.  Remember… Shopping locally this holiday season will not only enhance our community, connect and support us socially, and enhance wealth and employment by circulating dollars in the local economy, but also support your local community hospital.

All of the businesses listed in our 2020 Community Gift Guide are past or present donors to Peace Arch Hospital Foundation. Shopping locally will have DOUBLE the impact in your community this holiday season. It’s the spirit of giving that will extend well beyond Christmas Day.
