AS one of the leading meal providers to those in need, Guru Nanak’s Free Kitchen (GNFK) is building on last year’s successful Toy Drive for Those in Need. In 2013, over 1,770 new toys were delivered to schools with low income families as well as aboriginal groups in the Lower Mainland.
Families are encouraged to bring new toys to the Sikh Academy (gym hall), 12895 85th Avenue, Surrey, where new toys will be wrapped and placed in boxes (separated into age groups and gender), ready for delivery to various schools across the Lower Mainland.
This is a family event and people of all communities are invited to join the volunteers so that they may put a smile on as many kids as possible this festive season.
There will be refreshments available for all attendees as well as a bouncy castle for kids to enjoy at the event.
For those who wish to drop off toys prior to the event at Sukh Sagar Gurdwara, 347 Wood Street, New Westminster:
* Saturday, November 22, 5 to 8 p.m.,
* Sunday, November 23, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
