Letters: 17 Mile gathers toys for kids

Local business makes an effort to help out Toys for Kids

I am with the Sooke Harbourside Lions and we are doing our Toys for Kids service project on Saturday, Dec. 22.   What I am writing about is the 17 mile cold beer and wine store. They have put on their third annual toy drive and have many, many, incredible draw prizes to give away, which they will be doing on Wednesday Dec. 19.  Anyone donating a toy gets their name in the draw.  They have had an incredible response.They have liaised with my Lions Club and will be donating all the donated toys to our Toys for Kids.

Both the manager Harold and assistant manager Lisa have been incredibly supportive of this venture.
