Kwalikum students looking for Christmas trees

With the end of the holiday season, Kwalikum Secondary students are looking to help with the clean-up while raising funds for Dry Grad 2012.

With the end of the holiday season, Kwalikum Secondary students are looking to help with the clean-up while raising funds for Dry Grad 2012.

Students, parents and Town of Qualicum Beach volunteers will go door-to-door through town this Saturday collecting Christmas trees and empty bottles.

The annual pick-up is well-supported by the Town of Qualicum Beach and the community in general, said Karen Katchur, one of the parent organizers.

People are asked to leave their discarded trees, along with any bottles or other donations to the grad effort at the end of their driveway by 9 a.m.

Trees can also be dropped off at the town works yard on Berwick Rd.

Katchur can be reached at  karenkatchur@shaw.ca  or 250-752-3944 for more information or to help with the effort.

The KSS grad class also has other ongoing fundraisers including Quality Foods cards that need to be arranged through Jeanna at  djkyle@shaw.ca . Anyone can ask the cashier to donate their points to dry grad.

The annual KSS Christmas tree and bottle drive runs tomorrow (Jan. 7) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Contact the grad committee with questions, comments or to help with an event. The KSS chairs Leigh Campbell and Jennifer MacIntosh can be reached at KSSGrad12@gmail.com or check sites.google.com/site/kssgrad12.
