Once again, Swan Valley Communities that Care (SVCTC), with financial support from the Community Foundation of Swan Valley, is promoting a toy drive initiiative to ensure that children and youth in the valley have a happy holday season.

SVCTC Co-ordinator Beverly Polon and board member Brenda Fisher are pictured here with some of the toys that have already been purchased. Donation boxes for toys can be found at eight business locations and residents are asked to help make a kid’s Christmas morning one to remember.

The Stampeders have dedicated their December 17th game to this project, and local businesses and organizations are also helping to pay for toys and wrappings. The recipients of the gifts have been identified as youngsters who do not have access to existing Christmas programs, so let’s hope it is a very “Merry Christmas” for all our valley children.
