The Chek News Up Side Guys Ed Bain & Jeff King will be at the Firehall on Wednesday, April 21st to help promote the Smile for a Child Campaign.
This campaign is to collect toys and donations for the Pediatrics Ward at the Victoria General Hospital. Due to COVID the Toy Room on the ward is closed.
As a toy cannot be reused – it is given to a child and it becomes theirs to keep upon release, the need is ongoing. Esquimalt Lions are hoping to collect enough toys and collect enough donations to keep the ward stocked up to and including Christmas.
Cash donations can be sent to: The South Island Lions Committee @ 4-4570 West Saanich Rd., Victoria BC V8Z 3G4
The campaign ends May 31.
