Sears raising funds for Tree of Wishes

Once again, Sears Hometown Store in Courtenay is fundraising for its Tree of Wishes.

Once again, Sears Hometown Store in Courtenay is fundraising for its Tree of Wishes.

It’s a Christmas tree that is covered with snowflakes. Each snowflake has written on it a child’s initials, age and wish gift. Working with a local charity, 30 kids were given Sears Wish Books from which to choose a gift ‘wish” in the $20 to $35 range. These wishes are then displayed on the snowflakes on the Tree of Wishes.

Sears customers can then purchase these wish gifts from the selection on the tree. Sears also has a donation jar for those who would like to simply donate money towards the purchase of some of these gifts.

Last year, over 10,000 gifts were purchased across Canada through Sears Tree of Wishes. Locally, 30 wishes were fulfilled and local management is confident they can once again put presents under the tree for those most in need.
