Coins converted to Christmas toys

Coins for Kids raising cash for Great Nanaimo Toy Drive, Boys and Girls Clubs

Once all the coins are rolled, it will make a difference toward ensuring kids in Nanaimo have presents under the tree this Christmas.

The News Bulletin’s Coins for Kids charity is continuing its push for donations for the Great Nanaimo Toy Drive and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island.

Carolyn Iles, spokeswoman for the toy drive, said the charity is always so proud to see how the community responds to requests for toys, books, games and other gifts.

Coin jars can be found at Quality Foods locations, John’s Bedrooms and the Nanaimo News Bulletin office.
