Last year’s campaign was incredibly successful providing gifts to over 300 families on the Saanich Peninsula. These gifts are distributed through the Sidney Lions Food Bank to families in need at Christmas time.
The Peninsula Santa’s Helpers will be collecting new unwrapped toys for ages 6 months to 16 years, gift certificates and monetary donations. Gifts can be dropped off between November 14 and December 16 at the Mary Winspear Centre, SHOAL Centre, Buddies Toys, TD Bank, Star Cinema & Spitfire Grill.
Again this year the Peninsula Santa’s Helpers will be the recipient of the donations made to Coins for Kids, a fundraising initiative created by the Peninsula News Review. Please consider giving this year by dropping off your spare change at the Peninsula News Review or in a Coins for Kids collection box found at multiple locations throughout the Peninsula.
If you would like more information about collecting toys, volunteering or making a corporate or personal donation, please contact Carey Salvador at 250-656-0275.
Any and all support is graciously accepted. We anticipate the need to be equally great this year and hope by working together everyone on the Saanich Peninsula will have a joy filled Christmas.
