Mission Hall toy drive this weekend

Annual Kelowna event will take place this Saturday raising money and gifts for needy families

It’s a chance to donate gifts for those in the community in need.

The Mission Community Hall Association in partnership with Kelowna Community Foodbank, KelownaSantas.com, Mission Lions Club and the Mission Hall Girl Guides, invite you to be part of its Annual Santa Pancake Breakfast Toy Drive this Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m.

Due to the interest in this event all tickets which are only a Toonie are sold in advance online at okmissionhall.com and sell out quickly.

On the day of the event people bring an unwrapped toy to help fill the stage for this worthwhile cause. Last year the event was able to contribute over 300 fantastic toys and they hope to be able to even exceed that amount this year.

There will be Mission Lions Club pancakes, cookie decorating and crafts with the girl guides, and of course a icture with Santa all make for a morning you won’t want to miss.

The Mission Hall has been a landmark in the Mission since 1938 and was originally built with the focus being a Community Gathering Landmark and place for locals to come together, and keeping this focus in mind has been and continues to make the Mission Hall very successful.
