‘Tis the season for more toys to children in need

Local Integris Credit Union branch makes a donation to local charity for toys to children in need.

Anna-Christin Vines from Integris Credit Union presented a $5,000 donation to Laura Goodwin, chair of Santas Anonymous, and Karren Carver (centre), president of Kinettes Club, at the credit union’s branch in Vanderhoof on Nov. 13.

It’s the second year that Integris had donated to the club for its annual program to provide children in need with holiday gifts, Carver said.

From now until Dec. 15, for each new unwrapped toy deposited into donation boxes in Integris, donors would be entered to win a wine basket at the end of the collection period.
