Do you want to give back to your community, but aren’t sure how? This holiday season, consider donating to Nanaimo’s Great Nanaimo Toy Drive this year and help give Nanaimo families in need the chance to give their children both a great toy for Christmas and hope for the future.
The success of this event greatly depends on the generosity of Nanaimo’s businesses, organizations, and people. Purchase a new toy and drop it – unwrapped – off at one of the many drop-off sites that will be posted throughout the city. These sites include:
- Woodgrove Mall
- Nanaimo North Town Centre (formerly Rutherford Mall)
- Country Club Mall
- Coastal Community Credit Union branches
- The Nanaimo Museum
- Nanaimo fire halls
- The Wolf/The Wave radio stations
- Budget Storage North
- Many others!
For more information visit the official website (see below for details). A list of toy ideas for the kids is also available on there, or ask your own children or youth what they’d like for Christmas.
Let’s all make sure kids in Nanaimo have a Christmas present this year!
