Last chance for Holiday Swag

Ways to support Circle of Care this season


Circle of Care’s mission is to provide volunteer services that will help our seniors and others with illness or challenges to stay in their homes in Point Roberts. We have two win/win fund-raising products this month. In honor of the season, the board of trustees and friends of Circle of Circle of Care will take orders for two products: Holiday Swags (this will be our ninth year making swags!) and Picturesque Point Roberts 2024 Wall Calendars.
We will gather on December 1 to construct beautiful and whimsical holiday swags for your front door, porch or living room mantle. Small, medium, and premium swags are available in vertical or horizontal designs, decorated with ribbons, pinecones, tiny toys and ornaments. Your swags can be collected on Friday afternoon, December 1 at Trinity Community Church Hall and there might be a few for sale at the Holiday Craft Fair at the fire hall on December 3. Circle of Care will be serving soups, sandwiches and baked goodies at the fair as well. Swags are $20, $30 and $35. Please email your order, stating any colors or theme requests, to
On December 3, our Picturesque Point Roberts 2024 Wall Calendars will be available. If you have ordered them in advance, you can collect them at the Holiday Craft Fair, which runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., or they can be purchased at the fair. These beautiful, suitable-for-gifting calendars are spiral-bound, printed on heavy, luminous card stock and feature various local photographers’ photos of sunsets, landscapes, eagles and other wildlife, and one iconic person. They are $23. Please send your orders to
Our motto for most of our fund-raisers is: You give something, you get something. It’s a win/win for everyone!
"The Angel Project”
This program was initiated by Pamala Sheppard in 2020, in the midst of the Covid pandemic, and subsequently has been organized and administered by Circle of Care board of trustees. The Angel Project is an opportunity for us to provide Point Roberts families and elders with gift cards or cash during the holiday season.
Those benefiting are seniors living on fixed incomes who are having trouble paying the utility bills or buying groceries, families with children struggling to have something under the tree for their little ones, and residents with health issues or disability challenges. All being supported by our caring community, which reached deep into its pockets and contributed generously. Let’s do it again this year and make the season bright for everyone!
If you are aware of someone who you believe is struggling and could benefit from a little financial aid, please send us an email at
