The Tribune/Weekend Advisor’s annual Food and Toy Drive is coming up this Saturday, Dec. 13 with all of the support provided by our local business community.
Bring in a new toy or non-perishable food items for the Salvation Army’s Christmas wish program and exchange your donation for a gift certificate from one of our local businesses.
The event takes place at the Tribune/Weekend Advisor office at 188 North First Avenue from 10:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The prize envelopes on our Christmas tree this year include gift certificates donated by no less than 47 local businesses and several of those businesses are grand prize sponsors.
These grand prize sponsors are Allcraft Kitchen En’ Counters donating a maple rolling kitchen cart island; Canadian Tire donating a Tom Tom GPS; Eloquence Spa donating a half-day spa package; Pacific Coastal Airlines donating a round trip airfare for two to Vancouver; Sugar Cane TreadPro donating a set of four winter tires; and Williams lake Honda donating a service gift card.
In addition to extra details on this event, advertisers will be showcasing their fabulous products and sales for the busy Christmas retail season, says Tribune/Weekend Advisor publisher Kathy McLean.
“When it comes to supporting local charities the community of Williams Lake has always been so generous,” McLean says.
“We are hoping to exceed last year’s donations and make this Toy and Food Drive the largest yet. “Hope to see you this Saturday.”
