You can pick up your chocolates at our Christmas Open House for families on Tuesday, December 5, from 6-9 pm at Mira Facilitation Centre in Edmonton (6928 Roper Road, Edmonton).
We will have some treats and activities for the kids, but mostly it will be a time to connect with other families from around the Edmonton area who have children who are deaf or hard of hearing! Please feel free to bring an appetizer or dessert to share.
We will also have the Purdy’s Chocolates orders available for pick up.
