Let’s help Santa’s helpers now

Doing their part to help Santa, Duane Burnett, left, and MLA Nicholas Simons call for donations on the Elves Club telethon, broadcast from Heritage Hall in Gibsons Dec. 2. When the dust had settled, about $30,000 had been raised, money to help disadvantaged families with gift certificates at Christmas. The money came from people who watched on Coast TV and phoned in their pledge, and from the “boot campaign” of fire fighters, who collected cash at intersections and malls earlier in the day. Those needing help can apply in person until Dec. 12 (locations listed at elvesclub.ca, contact). The gift cards can be picked up Dec. 16 at the Trail Bay mall in Sechelt and Sunnycrest Mall in Gibsons.  Donna McMahon photo
