Lately we have had the wonderful opportunity to be a part of some Community giving back events! Last night we catered a Christmas Dinner for Pacific Community Church and their Cloverdale Kitchen Project. We fed 60 people who are less then privileged and some literally homeless, a Prime Rib dinner with all the fixings. Lise, Jess and Hailey all had a great time working with all the volunteers and it was a heart warming experience for sure. The gratefulness of those that came was overwhelming. The gentleman that organized it is only 31 years old and has been working with the soup kitchen for 6 years! seeing young people giving back so selflessly is inspiring. Thank you to Pacific Community Church for having us come be a part of what you are doing... we certainly hope to work with you again in the future.
Monday night, Dec 16, the Roadhouse hosted it's 12th Christmas Children's dinner. This year our guests were from Sources BC and Avalon Recovery Society. This is an email we received from Cindy who is a director at Avalon
"Dwayne, I cannot thank you enough for the amazing evening you gave to our families on Monday night.
The meal was amazing as usual, but the look on the children faces when you came out with gifts for each one of them, was by far the highlight.
I am very, grateful to you, and so are the many Moms and Dads that attended. I am still hearing about it.
Bless your big heart!

We served 72 people with 44 of them being children, all the children received a toy and even Santa showed up to hand them out.
This year we also have worked with the Peace Arch Hospital Foundation, we are donating $.50 from each customer bill from October 15 to 31st. We believe in working together as a community to ensure we have the best hospital our community can have.
Thank you to all our partners/customers that helped us in our endeavours to being good neighbours and being community minded.
We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
