VIDEO: Gifts, snow rain down on excited Douglas Park Community Elementary School students

Extreme Outreach Society visited Langley City school with gifts in tow on Dec. 19

Christmas has come early at Douglas Park Community Elementary School.

As thick snowflakes fluttered to the ground on Tuesday afternoon, Dec. 19, all 246 students from kindergarten to Grade 5 walked out to the front of the school where a pink firetruck was parked.

Once outside, they received gifts from Victoria-based Extreme Outreach Society, a non-profit organization with a mission to “break the cycle of poverty, homelessness and addiction at an early age.”

Students from Grades 1 to 5 received gifts and stockings; the kindergartners were handed teddy bears and stockings.

The kindergartners were the first to receive their presents from Extreme executive director Cliff Power and others, and many of them did so with wide smiles and shrill shrieks of joy.
