Coins For Kids is a Black Press campaign to raise money for local organization helping children during the holidays.

SIDNEY– Those collections of pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters and more are starting to pile up at home or at the office.

So why not help a child and their family this holiday season by donating those coins to the Peninsula News Review’s annual Coins For Kids campaign?

Once again, the News Review is collecting coins of any denomination (paper money and cheques are also accepted) in our annual effort to raise money to help children in need.

This year’s campaign will again help the Saanich Peninsula Toys For Tots effort. Founded by Rob McMillan and this year being run by the staff at Sidney’s Mary Winspear Centre, Toys For Tots hopes to buy gifts for girls and boys, young and old, to help make their Christmas a little better.

Last year, News Review readers donated more than $2,400 to the Coins For Kids campaign. We hope they will meet or beat that amount this year.

Look for Coins for Kids donation cans in Peninsula businesses. Drop off coins at the Peninsula News Review office at 103-9830 Second St. in Sidney.
