The Great Nanaimo Toy Drive is doing a final pre-Christmas push for donations.
With more than 1,000 children currently registered plus an expected 150 or more yet to be signed up for the organization’s late registration, happening Dec. 18, noon to 3 p.m. at the old Wholesale Sports location, 4900 Wellington Rd., the Great Nanaimo Toy Drive is urging everyone who has been meaning to donate a toy, teen gift, puzzle, or game to do so right away.
Toys are needed for all age categories and every gift counts, say organizers.
Donations can be dropped off at Woodgrove Centre, Nanaimo North Town Centre, Country Club Centre, all three Save-On-Foods locations, all four Nanaimo Fire Rescue firehalls, all Coastal Community Credit Union locations, Island Savings in Cedar and the Nanaimo Museum. The last day to donate is Dec. 15. For more information, visit https://thegreatnanaimotoydrive.ca/.
