All they want for Christmas in Parksville Qualicum Beach

School District 69's annual effort will ensure 100 families in the area will have a merrier Christmas this year

ALL THEY WANT FOR CHRISTMAS will ensure that 100 District 69 families will have a merrier Christmas this year. Rollie Koop, Superintendent of School District 69 and Virginia Worcester of Borealis Hair are ensuring that registered families will receive food staples, clothing, toys, games, books and gift cards. Many of the hampers will fulfill specific children’s toy requests. Funds were raised by the Borealis Hair Bar, a fundraising dance and auction in Qualicum Beach featuring Eddie and the Funk, as well as special angels throughout the community — with special thanks to Quality Foods.
