Coins for Kids busy collecting to support charities for children

Campaign continues its push leading up to Christmas

Coins for Kids contributions are appreciated year-round, but there’s always a little extra incentive at this time of year.

The News Bulletin’s holiday fundraiser is hoping for a few more bucks to be able to pass along to the Great Nanaimo Toy Drive and the Boys and Girls Clubs of Central Vancouver Island, two charities that work to make Christmas merrier for some of the area’s underprivileged children.

Any change dropped in the donation jars at Quality Foods, John’s Bedrooms and the News Bulletin office is greatly appreciated.
