Gift of Giving Campaign Results
The PEI Liquor Control Commission (PEILCC) presented cheques to several charitable organizations from across the Island recently as part of its annual Gift of Giving Campaign.
The Gift of Giving Campaign is an annual event by the PEI LCC, which donates a portion of all gift card sales during the month of December to community organizations.
This year, the campaign raised more than $16,000, and recipients include Blooming House, Bedford MacDonald House, MADD Canada, Make-A-Wish Foundation, Canadian Mental Health Association, and six food banks across the Island.
“I am very pleased that we can give back and support our communities through initiatives such as this one,” said Finance Minister and Minister Responsible for the Liquor Control Commission Darlene Compton. “These organizations do amazing work, and we will continue to support them and their important efforts to help people across our province.”
PEILCC is committed to the communities it serves, and this campaign gives back to organizations that provide important support and assistance to Islanders.

MADD Canada, The Salvation Army Bedford MacDonald House, Blooming House, West Prince Caring Cupboard, Summerside Salvation Army, Charlottetown Salvation Army, Upper Room Soup Kitchen & Food Bank, Southern Kings & Queens Food Bank, Souris Food Bank, Make-A-Wish, PEI Chapter (Unified with Children’s Wish), and Canadian Mental Health Association – PEI Division.
