Keep those coins rolling in

Black Press Coins for Kids campaign in full swing on the Saanich Peninsula.

Black Press is collecting readers' coins to help children in need.

This year’s Coins for Kids campaign by the Peninsula News Review is off to a great start, thanks to the donations of our readers.

The first tally of rolled coins in the campaign is $412.96 — as counted by Sherry Moir and the Toys for Tots volunteers on the Saanich Peninsla. This year’s Coins for Kids effort is going towards the Secret Santas Toys for Tots program. Organizers with Toys for Tots are working with the PNR to gather up people’s donated coins and have been taking them to the TD Bank Coin Counter at Tillicum.

The PNR is hoping to reach (or beat) last year’s total money raised of more than $3,000 — so dig up those hidden pennies and other coins and bring them to these drop-off points: • PNR office on Second Street in Sidney

• Brentwood Pharmasave

• Sidney’s Pet Centre

• Christine Laurent Jewellers

• Hypersport Activewear

• TD Canada Trust.
