Children's Christmas Workshop
The North okanagan Optimist Club has been involved with fulfilling the Vernon Children's Christmas Workshop since 2011.
Sandra Bradley of Vernon Real Estate (RE/MAX) organized this annual event to support local children low on cash to be able to pick out a gift for their parents, grandparents, relatives or guardians. The gifts are donated from people withing the local community and can be new or used. The types of gifts include everything an adult both ladies and men could use or appreciate. This is a wonderful opportunity for people to also re-gift items they no longer want. Also wanted for donations is the gift wrap, gift bags, tissue paper and bows, gift baskets and clear wrap. Please contact Sandra Bradely at 250-549-4161 if you have a gift to drop off.
If you feel you have a passion for this workshop and would like to volunteer, please contact Sandra Bradley at 250-549-4161 in early December. Volunteers are needed for gift wrapping, helping the children pick out gifts, and clean up.
The North Okanagan Optimist Club has volunteered it's members to assist this event since 2011 and has been very instrumential in it's success.
