Community Efforts

Gibbons & Bon Accord Christmas Food Drive

Our Santa’s Candy Drive takes place on the first weekend in December. Residents of Gibbons receive a bag of candy from the Gibbons Fire Department. This is a token of appreciation for your support throughout the year. We also collect donations for the food bank at the same time. We visit every house in Gibbons so keep your eyes opened for our display sign at the fire hall.

Senior’s Dinner

We cook dinner for the seniors living at Spruce View Manor several times a year. Please check in with us to find out when we will be there next.

Town Wide Garage Sale

In September of every year, we will be holding our annual Garage Sale BBQ with proceeds going towards the Geoff Jones Memorial Scholarship which helps relieves the financial burden for a student in a first responder education program. Our goal is to raise enough money to send at least one child to summer camp. We will be selling Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Beverages and Chips from 11am until we are sold out.
