Spirits of the West Coast Native Art Gallery hosting material drive for donations

Spirits of the West Coast Native Art Gallery is accepting much needed material donations for the Comox Valley SPCA. The gallery is inviting the public to stop by its new location at 2926 Back Rd., between East Courtenay and Comox, to donate an item for the SPCA during the first two weeks of February.

With your donation, you will receive a small thank you gift from the gallery as well as an entry into our Valentine’s Day draw for an exceptional heart-shaped box carved by Kwakwaka´wakw artist Mike Sedgemore valued at $400. The image of a supernatural bear carved on the brass lid is sure to delight your favourite Valentine.

The Comox Valley SPCA and its animals are in need of the following items that we will be happy to collect:

• Wet dog and cat food (No dry food)

• Dog and cat beds

• Fleece blankets, towels, face cloths

• Paper towels, toilet rolls and disinfectant wipes

“If you would like to donate funds directly to the SPCA, please do so and show us your receipt to pick up the gift and register for the draw,” said Walter Stolting, of Spirits of the West Coast Native Art Gallery.

Donations can be made directly to the Comox Valley SPCA, in person at 1668 Ryan Rd. East in Comox, or online at spca.bc.ca/locations/comox-valley/
