Everybody deserves a smile

Everybody Deserves A Smile is running the care packaging project through the school system this year.

Everybody Deserves A Smile, EDAS, a non-profit society dedicated to helping others, is taking on something new this year.

The organization is running the care packaging project through the school system this year, which means the students will be involved in a two-day, packaging project on Dec. 13 and 14 and hopefully will create 460 care packages all made and hand painted by the students.

The goal is 460 care packages, so that each student can make one, which would cover all those homeless in the Comox Valley and about 136 bags to a Shelter in Victoria called Street Links just like last year.

Help if you can by dropping off donations at École Puntledge Elementary School and spreading the word.

The biggest need will be for wool socks, toques, mitts and scarves. Items needed for: 271 men, 165 women, 12 little boys, 12 little girls: wool socks, toques, mitts, scarves, toothbrushes and toothpaste.

A donation drop box at École Puntledge Park Elementary School, 401 Willemar Ave. in Courtenay is open now.

Donations will be accepted until Dec. 7 at 3 p.m. Financial donations (in cheque form) can be made to Puntledge Trust. Contact principal Reimer at 250-334-4495.
