The time is drawing near to call on volunteers to come out for the annual YANA (You Are Not Alone) Christmas cracker campaign to begin.
The crackers are sold to raise money to help Comox Valley families that must travel to receive medical care for their sick children.
This year the drop-in workshops will begin on the Wednesday after Thanksgiving, Oct.16, rather than Oct. 1 as in previous years.
The schedule is: Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday evenings are available for groups (six or more) on request. Times can be arranged by individual groups.
These workshops will be held at the YANA office at 495 Fitzgerald Ave. To arrange a group session please call the office at 250-871-0343.
Volunteers are asked to refrain from bringing children.
