Nanaimo Toy Drive Gets Underway


The 29th annual toy drive launches Thursday Nov. 15 collecting toys and money to purchase gifts for underprivileged children in Nanaimo. The goal is to see that every child has something to open at Christmas time.

Last year the campaign was able to put smiles on the faces of more than 1600 children. You can drop off your donations at Woodgrove Centre, Nanaimo North Town Centre, Country Club Centre, all four Coastal Community Credit Unions, Nanaimo Fire Rescue fire halls and the Port Theatre.

Clippers fans can also bring a stuffed toy to the Clippers game at Frank Crane arena on Dec.1 where they can participate in the 'Clippers Teddy Bear Toss' by throwing their toy on the ice after the first Clipper's goal.

For more information about how to donate or to register a family to receive a gift for their children visit the Great Nanaimo Toy Drive website.
