The Prince George Christmas Wish Society has changed tactics in the face of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Unable to host the annual Christmas Wish breakfast due to safety concerns, the Society instead is holding a gift drop-off with new and unwrapped gifts, gift cards, or cash welcomed at three locations:
- Hart Centre Mall, this Saturday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.;
- Canadian Tire (near the front doors), this Sunday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.;
- CN Centre (near the front doors) Tues., Dec. 8, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
"In the last two years, we have collected more than 3000 new and unwrapped gifts to give to kids who may not otherwise receive any at Christmas," organizers said. "All proceeds raised will go to the St. Vincent de Paul Society and various non-profit organizations through the United Way of Northern B.C."
