The Forest of Miracles:
Ending Homelessness Beautifully
The ultimate Canadian Christmas leaves no one out in the cold. In the true spirit of the season, the Festival's "Forest of Miracles" calls out the better angels in all of us. Sponsored and decorated by families, community groups and businesses, the Festival's Christmas trees on beautiful Dundarave Beach have raised over $250,000 since 2008 for the Lookout Society's North Shore Shelter. West Vancouver's firefighters deserve special mention for their heroic in planting this forest and supporting the Shelter. The Lookout Emergency Aid Society has used this money to support essential services for the homeless, doubling the transitional services it provides to the most vulnerable members of our community.
