Okanagan Mission Community Hall ready for Christmas toy drive

Long-running community hall will gather gifts for those less fortunate in the community

The Mission Community Hall is in preparation for its annual Santa event, gathering up gifts for the community.

The Mission Community Hall Association in partnership with Kelowna Community Foodbank, KelownaSantas.com, Mission Lions Club, Mission Hall Girl Guides, invite you to be apart of our Annual Santa Pancake Breakfast Toy Drive on Dec. 9 from 9 to 11 a.m.

Mission Lions Club Pancakes, Cookie Decorating and Crafts with the Girl Guides, and of course a picture with Santa all make for a morning you won’t want to miss.

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 they also ask that everyone brings an upwrapped toy to help fill the stage for this worthwhile cause. Last year with your support they were able to contribute over 300 fantastic toys and hope to be able to even exceed that amount this year.

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.
