Are you having trouble making ends meet and beginning to feel the stress of Christmas approaching? The SOS Caring for Community at Christmas program has, for over 50 years, been making sure local children and youth receive a special gift, and adults and seniors have food in the cupboards over the holidays. Registration for the program begins November 14th. Local residents must apply in person at the SOS Community Services Centre in Parksville during business hours. There will also be registration opportunities in Qualicum Beach and Bowser as well. Please visit www.sosd69.com or call 250-248-2093 ext. 229 for more information.
