Santa’s Helpers need your help

SIDNEY — A holiday toy drive campaign is under way this month. The Peninsula Santa’s Helpers launched their effort on Nov. 14 and are collecting new, unwrapped toys for boys and girls between the ages of six months and 16 years. Their goal is to reach families in need at Christmas time.

The Peninsula News Review, in partnership with Panorama Recreation, is lending a hand again this year, donating the proceeds from our annual Coins for Kids campaign. The News Review is accepting cash donations of any kind to help ensure children in need receive gifts this holiday season. You can find the Coins for Kids collection boxes at locations throughout the Saanich Peninsula, or drop off your donations at the PNR: 103-9830 Second St. in Sidney during office hours.

The Santa’s Helpers have toy collection boxes at the Mary Winspear Centre, SHOAL Centre, Buddies Toys, TD Bank in Sidney, Spitfire Grill and Star Cinema. Gifts are being accepted now until Dec. 16.

Last year, the campaign provided gifts to more than 300 families through the Sidney Lions Food Bank.

For more information, contact Carey Salvador at 250-656-0275.
