SOS Christmas program for rural residents

Campaign assists low-income families and individuals in registering for the local program.

The SOS Caring for Kids at Christmas Campaign is heading out to two of the area’s rural communities to assist low-income families and individuals in registering for the local program.

With the community’s help, the SOS raises enough money to ensure every child in the program gets a gift to unwrap on Christmas morning.

Parents, caregivers and individuals receive grocery store gift cards.

Registration will take place in Bowser at the Kiwanis Lighthouse Community Cupboard, at the Wildwood Church (113 McColl St.) on Wednesday, Nov. 12 from 9 a.m. to

11:30 a.m.

Registration will take place in Coombs at the Grace Community Cupboard, located at the Grace United Church (2304 Alberni Hwy) on Wednesday, Nov. 19 from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Each adult registering (18 years and older) must bring proof of residency along with picture ID and Care Cards for children living in the home full time. Registration must be in person.

The grocery store gift card and toy distribution is scheduled for Dec. 15-19 at the SOS, located at 245 West Hirst Ave. in Parksville.

Call the SOS for more information 250-248-2093.
