Efforts continue through weekend

Their annual food and toy drive continues Sunday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The eight departments in District 69 are Bow Horn Bay Fire Department, Coombs Hilliers Volunteer Fire Department, Dashwood Volunteer Fire Department, Deep Bay Fire and Rescue, Errington Volunteer Fire Department, Nanoose Volunteer Fire Department. Parksville Volunteer Fire Department and Qualicum Beach Fire Department.
