Grocer helps disabled kids

Country Grocer is raising money to help send children with disabilities to camp this summer.

Until April 23, all stores will be selling Easter Seals paper eggs for $2 each in support of B.C. Lions Society for Children with Disabilities and Easter Seals Camp Shawnigan.

“We are honoured that B.C. Lions Society contacted us to be partners in the Paper Egg program,” said director Peter Cavin in a press release. “Our goal is to sell as many paper eggs as we can at each Country Grocer location.”

Nanaimo’s Country Grocer is at 1399 Lawlor Rd. in Chase River. For more information, please call 250-753-7545 or go to
